Need intake and cam advice

Post  Faststreetcar on June 1st 2014, 10:18 pm

I've acquired some parts for a street/strip 501cid Ford engine. Not a max effort deal. Would like it to run on 110 octane turbo blue:

DOVE stock block
Aluminum Super Cobra Jet heads (mild professional port)
Forged 501cid rotating assembly (SRP Flat Top Pistons)

The heads are as cast 72cc, so I'm thinking it will be around 13:1. Would like to run a solid roller cam that will allow the valvetrain to live with occasional street use. Would run a dominator style carb.

What intake should I use assuming we want 7k RPM? Who should I get a cam from? Approximate cam specs?

What kind of power would be realistic for this?

Thanks for any info.

The specs of the vehicle to be used will make those determinations.

It's around 3450# and we will get the appropriate converter to match the results from the engine dyno. We will use a TH400 trans with the appropriate gear. Was trying to decide between a Victor 460 or the TFS mafia intake.

Thanks for any info.

What I have observed is the TFS manifold making more peak power.
