I am ASSembling a guinea pig engine out of some parts I already own for my turbo project. Here is the list:


302 Roller block and rotating assembly
GT40 Heads
Weiand 7515 intake
Blow-thru
76mm turbo
1.6 Crane rockers

3000lb car
C4
Transbrake
3100ish converter flash
3.27-3.55 gear

I have both the stock HO camshaft and a F303. I havent purchased springs yet. More strip than street anymore.

Which would you use? Im leaning towards the stocker, but wanted some opinions.

Thanks

You can make more than enough power with the stock cam to split the stock block.  You're turbo will be on the big or laggy side for a mostly stock 302, but it should be fun when it's all together.

If you already own the F cam, and you will not be tearing the engine apart to install it, I would run the F cam.

If you have to buy the F cam, or do a bunch of work to install it, use the stocker with some 1.7 rockers.

That turbo is going to need some help getting it to spool with that small of a head.

I already own both camshafts. I will be using the dog-bone style lifter also.

Performance with this engine isnt a "huge" deal, as its more to get the turbo/blow-thru sorted before using my good junk. I would like for it to run fair, but it is what it is.

I went with the GT40 stuff so if something does let go, Im not out anything.

It would be easier to run a Super Victor like the kit is made for, but I dont think that would work too well.

F-303 will need better valve springs for sure.  I have seen one peak at 5700 rpms with GT-40 heads and Cobra intake/75mm throttle body. I believe it made near 280-285 rwhp.

What would you guys thing of the F cam with a Super Victor intake? I doubt it would be ideal, but if I used one I could bolt the turbo kit straight on without any modifications. Camshaft will be degreed and the carburetor will be from C&S for either pump gas or E85. Im tempted to use my Dart block and good parts rather than doing this whole mismatch operation, but Im afraid Ill hurt something.

The super victor is way too big!. The victor jr intake is plenty for a GT-40 head.

He did that quite awhile ago.    Aftermarket block 306. 
Once you go turbo, IMO the need for badass custom billet roller cams is likely not ultimately needed except for people doing high end racing. 
Find the " when will it grenade" thread  and you'll shit at what can be accomplished with very very stock parts and a turbo. 
Locally we had a guy do 600+hp with an F-cam and GT-40 top end and stock bottom.  Good fuel goes a long ways.

I would lean towards the stock cam, based solely on the converter.
