Very good cam article.


Recommended Posts

Very good article. Clear and to the point as well as being accurate. If you are looking to do a cam change read this first. Chuck

In my mind this article lays out the case for why it is worth the extra 100 bucks or so to get a custom cam from a supplier/builder who is familiar with the engine platform you are working with, even on a mild build.

Yes, good article. I agree, too, about getting a custom cam. I researched most of the available off-the-shelf cams and the only two that came close to what I want were one from Lunati and one from Howards. But, I'm not playing horseshoes, so will likely be one from Brent Lykins.

Wow this article is exactly what I've been looking for after trying to figure out what cam I needed for the last week. Since I'll get it custom iit also means it will be one of the last components I probably purchase for this car...

Make sure you get the cam from someone that understands Cleveland heads, otherwise you'll likely get something better suited for a Chevy.

You might want to also read this article, about Q code heads and performance.
