I have a question about the installed centerline for the Comp 282 Solid cam (pn 20-247-4) for my engine.
I have a .030 over Mopar 318 in a '73 Plymouth Scamp. The car weighs in at 3400 lbs and is street/strip. It is topped off with thoroughly ported iron heads, 1.6 rockers, headers, a Victor 340 single plane intake, and 750 DP Holley HP. It runs a bit over 10.5:1 compression and has an all forged bottom end with no problems spinning to 7000 RPM. The engine is backed by a Torqueflite auto with a 3500 stall converter, 3.91 gears, and 26" DOT slicks.
I originally installed this cam at 110 centerline and it is very lazy on the bottom end. The combo will typically pull about a 2.0 60-ft time and just seems very slow.
I've decided to dig into the engine and advance the cam to the 106 centerline that is recommended on the card. I'm wondering what I should set this cam at for installed centerline. The cam card states that it should be at 106, but I'm wondering if I should be looking for more or less advance on the installed centerline.
