Im looking to do so performance upgrades to  my 67 327 Camaro , It was originally a 327/210hp . The motor was rebuilt prior to me buying the car 3yrs ago . It currently has stock heads, Air Gap intake 4/ 1" spacer , 650 Holley DP Electronic Ign. Dynomax Ceramic Headers, Flowmater w/x pipe. 3:55 Posi. 4Speed. I am looking at adding Edelbrock Performer RPM ALuminum heads and there 7102 cam. Does anyone have any input on this combo or any other suggestions ?

TIA
Jeff

Wow Kart--nice-looking car! That 327/210 doesn't have much static compression, so from my experience the RPM heads would work very well with a cam of around 230 duration @ .050" and around .500" lift. The RPM intake ports are around 170ccs, so a 327 with 3:55s will have good low-end response if you get the smaller combustion chamber heads. The 650 double-pumper will work, but I'd use a 600cfm 1850 Holley and a Trick Kit to tune it with--that low-compression 327 just doesn't need that much carburetor. You already have the good stuff otherwise. I've seen the combination I've suggested put a 327 car much like yours solidly in the 13s in the 1/4-mile. Not bad for a 327/210 base engine! That's my input, for what it's worth. Good luck!

Thanks Hotrod68, I was able to get ahold of  the previous owner (he rebuilt the engine before I bought it) and found out the car has 10:1 but he couldnt remember the cam specs, I still may change the cam to something a little more choppy but nothing  that stock rockers cant handle.

TIA

Looks like a nice street beast. I may be posting a bit late. But have you thought of using a sloid lifter cam ? They are very responsive. Here is a good example of a nice cam to use. It is the Lunati PN 20108 LK . It is particularly well suited to a 10 to 1 compression ratio 327. It is lunati's copy of the Duntov cam.
 It's static compression ratio is 10 / 1

Dynamic compression ratio is     8.23 / 1

So it will run quite happily all day on 91 octane gas

Most importantly the powerband is between 1800 and 6200 rpm. Thats a 4400 rpm wide band !!
This is quite a good cam for a light Camaro with a 4 speed stick, you will have plenty of low down torque

The valve lift  is .485 intake and .503 exhaust, so a good new set of chevy LT1 copy springs should live for a long time in this engine provided you dont miss to many shifts.  Grin

Any 64 cc head and either the .015" or .020" thick shim headgaskets will get you up to a stock very close to 10 to 1 CR so that you can run any number of great old 268/270/272 and even a couple of 274 hy-cams.

This effectively turn's the 210hp/327 into the 275 and 300hp/327.

I agree - Solid lifter cam for a 327. That is the only way to fly in one of those in my opinion.
