Default recommend me a cam

95gt
gt40 iron heads
1.6rr
cobra intake
shorty headers
off road xpipe
3.73 gears


i have the old cam out of the car.
the car currently will be driven only occasionally on the street and never on a track.
the car may one day become a daily driver for my nephew when he gets old enough to drive.

feel free to shoot me your recommendation
i have a couple already, but since i havent bought anything yet, i fiugre i could get a few more before pulling the trigger.
thanks

Lol, its a classic episode. I remember when it aired. Lol look at the section that lists his mods: "Big Cams". More than one B cam = power only the gods hold

in all reality though...the B cam is a great cam for the gt40 heads...E is a good street cam, B is more of a track cam (higher rpm range)...the trick flow stage 1 is the same as a B cam prettyu much...
