Re: Upgrade my stock 350 for torque.

I've put the Summit Racing 1103 cam in two 350's now and could not be happier. I currently run that cam with one of the cheap Summit Racing torque converters (2,300-2,600 RPM stall) and could not be happier. I run it with Vortec heads and a Weiand Stealth (two plane, like your Performer) intake and a 1406 Edelbrock carb. That truck weighs 3,640 lbs curb weight, without me. Cam broke in perfectly, even with a couple of hiccups during the break in process. The 1103 cam reports a power range between 1,600-5,200. If that is a little higher than you want your power band to be, the 1102 cam from Summit looks good and has good reviews. It's power building range is reportedly between 1,500-4,000 RPM. Either way, I don't think that you can beat those cams for the money, each priced at $62, or $100 for the kit that includes new lifters, which you will NEED when swapping your cam.

Good luck!
