My Garage
I used a HO firing order cam in one of my 302's and didn't change the crank, flexplate, balancer and didn't notice any problems. I did notice the low end response wasn't as good, but that was probably just the cam that I used. If you go to the serpentine belt, don't forget to change your water pump also. It spins the opposite direction.
