    Default Cam and Manifold advice

    I am looking for some advice as to what Cam and intake manifold works best with a M1 pro charger on a 454 Mag. This is in a 25' Eliminator Daytona with a 1.36 drive and 28 pitch prop.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks

    I have the M-3 Procharger running 9psi of boost. I did my research and built my current BBC 468 around the Procharger. I had a good conversation with the Comp cam techs and based on what I wanted to do they suggested the Comp Cam 11-568-4 Nitrous HP Lift 284/305, Intake 575, Exhaust 595, 113 lobe separation. Can't run nitrous with a Procharger, but this is the one suggested and my engine runs strong. A good port matched single plane intake is best. I went with the Edelbrock Victor Jr. On top of that I have the QFT blow through carb 750cfm.

    A larger boat with an I/O will benefit from a dual plane manifold. On a 496 and smaller, the Edelbrock Performer is a good choice unless you're going to spin over 6k, in which case the Performer RPM is hard to beat.

    I personally can't give any advice that isn't available from your favorite cam company, but I'd think something like Comp Cams XM284HR would suite well.

    If you would like the most from your combination, contact Chris Straub, cstraub on the boards, and have him create a custom grind for you. There have been many success stories and no complaints I know of, from those that have gone with his cams.

    Whatever route you take, make sure to use the appropriate valve springs too.

    Good luck!
