Personally I didn't know melling made cams....probably ok for a stock replacement. For performance use I would probably look else where. Summit racing or jegs have tech lines that can offer suggestions (reccomendations)

A rv cam is only a slightly more aggressive cam than stock. It would be better to have the heads, gear ratio, etc picked out so the best cam recomendation can be made. I would get the heads you will be using before picking a cam. If you get some 202's you can run a larger cam, where as if you have some 194's (stock on most smog era Chevys) a huge cam would make a dog of a motor.

Do yourself a favor,call Lunati and Crane and Compoetition cam and see what they say, one of them might have a great custom grind that someone else paid for that they can do for you for a few bucks more.

I think for what you are looking for, that is going to be the best head to go with. Hopefully yours has 76 cc heads on it right now, so the 67 cc vortec will help compression. I BELIEVE, so you may want to check that those heads only have room to .480 lift. But with the cam I recommended you will be fine. You will need a Vortec intake though. I don't think you are going to beat $600 for a pair of heads anywhwere else.

Those heads are a great price, I assume they are 23 degree heads?

With respect to cams- (no offense to Lunati) but I don't see any "Dyno" testing specifications on their website. Comp Cams publishes their torque/hp "curve" for every cam they sell. looks like this:
http://www.compcams.com/Technical/DynoSheets/XE262H-10_001.asp

Maybe I didn't look hard enough on their site though or they only provide it if you call them. Regardless, you should call whatever cam manufacturer you're going with & give them the spec's on those heads.

Vortec Intakes:
Square or spread bore

This is the intake I would use. I like it on more stock stuff because of the square bore flange. It gets overlooked, but it is better than a standard Performer.

The thing you need to know about the 202 heads is the chamber size.
Heads with the 2.02 intakes have been around for decades, and the early types have no bolt holes for accessories.
And like I mentioned earlier, you could spend a lot of bucks on them if they have a lot of wear on them.
Also, the intake velocity with 2.02 intake valves on a 350 or smaller engine, will be affected & slower etc.
Look at some of the GM crate engines, like the ZZ4, with 1.94 intakes, and 355 HP for example.

200 to buy em then 500 to make em good. Call these guys they have been around a long time and cheaper than what you are going to need there.

Don't know anything really about cams, but for heads I would definitely go aluminum if it was affordable. Heads are heavy!

I think you could get away with it. Check back a month ago, I recommended the cam one size smaller than that one.
