Good street cam

I recently got a 460 bored out to a 472 with trw dish top pistons and d0ve heads, my plan is to make a 600hp street engine for my mustang and I'm wondering what would be a good cam choice? I was doing some research on the comp cam xe-274 but I'm not sure if it's what I need. Any info is much appreciated, thanks!

If you want a cam recommend to you, you will have to give detailed specifications on this engine.

Those are the same pistons I have (except mine are .030 over), they have a 22cc dish. The D0VE heads are 75 - 77cc chambers, so your at the 10:1 compression range (depending on other build factors).

If the heads are stock now (un-ported) I would recommend you just get some aluminum TFS or AFR heads, which will save you a lot of weight. What you spend on machine work (studs, guides, larger valves, springs, etc. for the D0VEs) and porting will pay for a nice set of aftermarket heads. Unless you can do a lot of the work yourself.

More stroke for more cubes . Good Aluminium heads. to get even close to what you want. What you have planned won't make 600

I did have a look at the tfs heads but im just not sure they are in the budget right now unless i find a good used set, I thought that 600hp was doable with dove heads with porting?

600 hp is achievable at 460 inches with Very well ported large valve Dove heads. The operative word being well ported.

Flat top pistons
Well ported early castings with large valves (Cost more than out of the box SCJ's or AFR 270's now)
Single plane victor (requires victor port match) or TFS track heat 1050 carb
Solid roller cam (I did 615 HP at only 6,000 RPM
578.2 pound feet @ 4,600 RPM with the XR280R and a ported victor some 10+ years ago)
1.73 comp XD roller rockers...

Knowing what I do now I would and have done things a bit differently.

Point here is that while is it possible is it advisable?
Not pump gas friendly.
Not at all street friendly as the solid roller cam's spring requirement renders the solid roller lifters a consumable.


As has been mentioned elsewhere in the thread. Larger 521" engine, 252 /266 SFT cam, Track heat intake, Well ported early castings, 1050 holley 600 to 620 HP. A streetable combo we've done before.
