Re: 351 build-up

Cam choice and Heads will determine a lot of your end product too.

Don't forget good ignition and exhaust either.

My own experiences with a redline street torker have been great. and their design suits the bottle also, which is good.

depending whats behind it, this if setup well will be a nice little package :)

Re: 351 build-up

Just go the largest hydraulic camshaft not roller hydraulic and you'll get 170-200rwkw easy.

Not sure if he still has it but XBWGN on these forums has a camshaft forsale. In his engine is ran up 212rwkw. If I remember right? The cams only done a couple of thousand k's work. So it's basically a new cam.

A decent twin 2 1/2" twin system will help too. The factory XE electronic ignitions fine. I run an Accel dizzy myself with no boosters like Crane or MSD. Not even a fancy coil. I run a bosch 717 coil.

If it don't sell we'll prob use it during his brothers 351 rebuild.
