Re: 4v OC camshaft.....

yeah I just recently decided to go with 4.11 gears today cause the car is fairly heavy ('72 mustang mach 1) and several builders convinced me. We only have a 1/8th mile track here and with a 600 cfm edelbrock and a stock tranny and stall it ran consistant 9.2's at around 75mph...crossing the line in 2nd at 5000.

I have a 750VS speed demon, TCI streetfighter C-6 tranny, and a 2000 stall on it now so I hope that I have broken into the 8's.

eventually I plan on making up for the low compression with a small shot of nitrous, like only a 50 or 75 shot.

If anyone else has some cam recomendations they are more than welcome.

Re: 4v OC camshaft.....

stock pistons?, i would'nt recommend NOS the cam you have spec'd will work with your combo, the 526 come is @ 2500 to 6500. for wht it worth.

Re: 4v OC camshaft.....

other people on this forum have informed me that the stock cast pistons will hold up just fine with a small shot.
