i put different cam in the 318 i built for my desoto again. this is the third one and it has not even ran yet! i guess i cant make up my mind. i first put this motor together 4 years ago. its an 86 van 318 i got off of a friend for free. i rebuilt it, +.030, 10/10 crank, cast pistons, windage tray, #302 heads, performer intake, 450 holley spread bore factory 340 cam. 2 years ago i decided to put a comp cams xe254 cam in it and a wieand stealth intake. now i ve decided to go roller(since it was a roller block) so i got a LA roller cam out of the junkyard, had it reground by bullet cams and i`m putting some redrilled magnum heads w/ rocker studs/guide plates and chevy 1.6 roller rockers. i`m really going for mpg here and not a performance build. next thing to do is pull these heads and put the magnums on.

Sounds like you are going in the right direction. Don't worry about the back and forth, at least you are doing more than wishing what you want.
