on a typical 9:1-10.5:1 cpr sbc performance build I think youll find this chart helpful

theres a great deal more than just selecting a cam, alone involved in building a good street combo.
factors like rear gearing,transmission, gearing, transmission type, cylinder head flow and cross section, intake design,carb size, your ability to tune a carb, exhaust design and car weight ETC.can make or ruin a combos street manors.
I can,t tell you how many guys read a magazine article that reportedly gets 500 plus hp from a 355-396 sbc and the guy reading it thinks WOW I CAN DO THAT!
I can,t afford those expensive cylinderheads and that roller cam, and IVE got only 9:1 compression,and IM running a 3.08 rear gear, not a 4.56:1 rear gear..and my car weights 1200 more lbs,......... but... I can sure buy a flat tappet hydralic cam with similar duration, add that intake and carb, and it should be close enought to kick my buddies cars butt!

If you think IM kidding.... youve had alot less experiance dealing with whats running around on the street than I have.

you would be surprised at the combos I see, and in many of them theres not that much wrong, but matching the drive train and gearing to the combo is critical, and in most cases the cam selection could be better, it it was selected for the 98% of the time the cars used as daily transportation rather than the 2% of the time they spend at the track!
IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!
