This is simply being general but, that cam looks as though it has moderate flank rates like a marine or mid-size oval track grind would exhibit.

What are you replacing it with ?

I'm trying to figure out power to what rpm wth that combo? I'd think 6,600 - 6,800 +/- it should make some good power. What was the stoke ?

Weight of car, gearing, tire, rpm limit of engine ?

I'd think that cam is going to make good power in that engine up to 6,600+ depending on the air flow of the heads. Run the cam, dyno it and gear the car accordingly.

the 108* lobe sep and 13.5 comp is going to make some serious POP in that engine. Could you get more with a different cam .....yes you could go more radical on the cam and rev it higher.

it was in a gutted fox with 456 gear and 29.5 x 10.5 tire was shifting around 6700, was when light came on. what kind of power do you think this thing was making. the motor was originaly built for a cobra kit car but once the guy drove it one time it scared the $hit out of him so he took it back to the builder and told him to build a stock 460 for the car. so that was how I wound up with it :D

I'd think you'd be able to find someone in Georgia to flow them ?? ;)

Somewhere on this site you can find the list Pecking order head list I think there are posted flow numbers in the thread.

Do your Blue Thunders have the Ford or the Chevy Ex port ?

I'm sure someone reading this might know someone closer. I wonder if Engine Systems is still in Tucker Ga. I think that's by Atlanta though ? Not sure how far you are from either.

UPS ground........or a ground courier and ship it ? Sometimes we've found a courier service will drive something for us for $ 60 delivered in two days.

yes engine systems is still in tucker they are about the same distance, this is where the heads came from but the guy who built the motor could not find any paper work that is why I sent the cam off to see what it was, the motor was built around 98-99 so I thought is was time for a fresh up
