I’m looking to swap the cam on a old 350 to a roller. The engine was previously locked up, I’m just doing a tear down cleaning everything and upgrading a few parts here or there to make a little more power. Any recommendations on roller cam options, kits, or just general advise for a 350 would be appreciated.

I would talk to the major cam companies and see what they recommend.

Hi.

I know I'm not answering your question, but if you have the engine out and are tearing it down a limited amount for performance improvement, have you thought about going further with a 383 kit? More expense for sure, but WOW: What a difference. Big Block Performance that you wouldn't regret. 👍👍

I did the same thing when it came time to replace cam. I can highly recommend Summit Racing. I called their tech line phone number and talked to their very knowledgeable tech person. He asked me many questions pertaining to my engine and then recommended a great Comp Cams kit that included timing gears/chain. lifters, and valve springs. Made for an easy reassembly and performs great.
