I wasnt really impressed but this is the first time I have had one of my motors dynoed. I have a bigger cam I need to put in. This is in a 87 ranger mud racer.

Jon, Is that a Lunati cam part number 5106? It sure looks like it by the specs you gave. I ran that cam in my 557 with reworked A429 CJ's. I never dynoed the motor but we estimated about 850 HP. It ran a best of [email protected] weighing 2600 lbs. I run alky also. I had a lifter failure so I am switching to a custom grind from Carroll Carter at C&C Motorsports. The old cam worked OK but we felt like it was a little on the small side for my motor. I would definitely think with your heads that you could use more cam.Just my 2 cents. Good luck

Motor data.....

Dive block with Bluethunder 4-bolt caps on 2,3,and 4.
Eagle 4.14 crank
Eagle 6.8 rods
Manton 3/8 push rods
Comp SS Rockers
Jomar stud girdle
Old TFS intake

Arias Pistons They that are a shelf piston with the Dual Intake Valve reliefs cut. 7cc dome

The heads were done by Ford Performance Soulutions. Long story but do not have them do your heads!!!!

I flat milled the heads .100 only to get the chamber down to 80cc's.(Dissapointed) FPS ran a cnc program on part of the chamber and really opened them up to much.

compression ended up at 13.5-13.8 to 1.
Yes it is the 5106 Lunati cam that is in it now.

My new cam is 284 304 @.050 .830ish with 113 lobe sep. I have not installed it yet thou. I want to switch cams and re dyno and see what happens. The new cam should defenitly move the peak HP up. I think with this new cam it should peak around 7500 rpm and make 850 HP at least...I HOPE!!!! One thing I think is interesting is I think it would make a great street terror engine, if you could afford fuel. It really doesn't sound that radical,Sounds very healthy but not radical.

Im still working on the chassis and drivetrain but maybe this winter I will have enough time to put the new cam in.
