Hey guys new to the forums and was wondering what some of your opinions would be on a camshaft for my application.
The car will be a high performance street machine. It will be driven quite a bit on the street and will see heavy throttling every once in awhile on and off the street. Might see the strip a couple times a year just for fun.
355 rear gears
4 spd manual wide ratio (1st 3:1 4th .79:1)
76 Ford 302 w/ aluminum heads w/max lift of .550, headers, 600 cfm 4 barrel, and 10.6:1 static compression ratio
Email Ed Curtis over at Flowtech (FTI) and get a custom grind. A tad bit more money, but definitely worth it. You can get him to grind something that will work with the springs your heads have, and be really easy on valvetrain parts while making more power.
And he's a genius with SBF cams.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!
Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
