It's getting time for a rebuild, previous owner was a kid who didn't know how to take care of things lol. I'm planning on 7x12 sticks for my s363 turbo. But I'm not sure which cam I need. The truck is going to be my daily driver so I need something pretty streetable, if anybody can point me in the right direction or give me some input on the cams that you have tried I would greatly appreciate it??????

Ok good stuff, thank yall! How about valve springs?

I got conicals (not beehive ) from Manton pushrods and some 1/2"  pushrods :wow: and new toolsteel  trunnions. I got a good deal on it as he was just starting to experiment with it on our trucks, they were used in race world for a long time. Kinda a guinea pig, gave him some feed back on how it all went. I had minor issue with 1/2" pushrods, at certain angle they were hitting rokerarm, I had to shave a little off so nothing binded. I also got longer arp bolts to hold rokers, factory ones are kind of short and with more pressure from heavier spring didn't want a chance to yank them out.

Springs and pushrods will be fine stock, but at the upper edge. If you plan in additional rpms then get springs and pushrods. 
 

I used Hamilton 103# Springs and their mid level pushrods. 
 

I also used their 178/208 cam. It was a major improvement over stock, but the 3rd gen cam isn’t the same as a 2nd gen. Then again it was a noticeable improvement over a colt cams stage 1, which is a better cam than a stock 2nd gen. 
 

 

So it comes down to the money you want to spend. You won’t be disappointed if you get a mild cam. Don’t go too big for a DD thou. 
 

If you do a cam also do springs and pushrods, IMO
