78 Fury 2 door. 904 non lockup, 2.76 rear. 318-2bbl with still working Lean Burn (which is being removed-- and SOON) ONLY deviation from stock is true duals..... 56K orig miles. I'm 2nd owner, bought in 2007 with 38K original, from original owner. Also already has Edelbrock True Roller T chain, installed when water pump started leaking, because I was "that close," and was afraid of original nylon toothed cam sprocket about, 8K ago) LOVES cruising at 70/ but just takes a little too long in getting there. ---I have.... a COMP 260H cam, (slightly used, my son had it in a 360 for 5K, til he decided the 360 wasn't enough, he "had to" build a 408 in a Ramcharger) Lifters are with it, and marked, as to where they ran, on said cam Paid extra to have said cam "Nitrided" from COMP --- a Weiand and an Edelbrock Perfomer for 4 bbl intake choices ---a Carterbrock 500, a Carter brock 625, and a couple of ready to run TQs a set of fresh from the machine shop '302 heads, basic VJ, nothing special done to them, may try some simple porting and "cleanup" before I put them on This is a cruiser, will never be a race car... just like a little more "spirit" in "spirited" driving, nothing crazy. Am considering down the road possibly swapping gears... maybe 3.08s (made popular in 8-1/4s in XJ Cherokees and newer that used 8-1/4 rear) or maybe a set of 3.21s "but not now".... Given the pile of parts I have "right here, right now", does anyone see a good combo that makes sense to wake up the 318? I AM NOT SWAPPING TO A 360, so DON'T GO THERE! I am also NOT going any deeper into short block than a cam and those 302 heads.... being I also have a vintage popup (that also happens to be a '78) that I may pull on short jaunts (100 miles or so each way, maybe 3-2 times a year for weekend campouts but this is the exception, not the normal use planned..... is there a better cam choice? Id like to use what I have but I may buy a cam if ther eis a better "bang for buck" option available... trans will come out for a "freshening" next salt season when car is again parked.... trans has never been out, to date, since new. may consider "slight" converter stall bump at that point but again "not now". my wife likes driving it too, want more oomph, dependable enough not to be temperamental, and the AC stays.
