Default Cam recomendation for ford 460

I am in the process of building my 460 up and am curious as to what type of cam would be the best for UP wheeling and an automatic tranny. I was looking at the Summit 4wd cams and am trying to decide between the 1500-4000rpm and the 2000-4500rpm cam

Powertrain in a nutshell, 1976 460 with flat tops and 97cc heads, C6, 203/205, 4.10's, 39.50 TSL's. All under a 75 scout.

What would you guys reccomend?

you can use a better grind ona 429/460 if you can find one that offer close to the same as stock for duration and just higher lift in a nice hydro cam. the older 360 hp models used a 257* Int. 260* Ext with a 438 lift (+ rockers ratio) stock is 1.7:1 . so you can get to about a 550 lift on the cam and still keep your nice idle and street driviblity. if you go bigger duration wise then you are wasting fuel at that point since it doesn't sound like you need that kind of power band. you should be happy with a med range cam that works up to 5000 rpm.

I'm sorry, I can't allow you to build that truck. It is just too out of control.
