Re: cam choice

That or a crane F238 solid would work well.

[edit]This is the setup using the Crane F238 we had or still have infact.

351 +30.
Full floating pistons (Keith Blacks).
10.5:1 compression.
F238 Crane.
750dp carb pn 4779.
Weiand Xcellerator.
Distributor is a motorcraft item without vac advance which is being changed to XD/XE/ICE ignitions style dizzy with an MSD 6AL powering it.
2V CC heads flowing 494hp (2.19/1.71 exhaust valves) Goes against the grain but it works. Screw in studs, stud mount roller rockers, guideplates & pushrods to suit.
No name Tri Y extractors withs a 2 1/2" system, H pipe and straight though mufflers.
C4 stage II shift kitted.
3500rpm convertor.
4.11 gears.

The owners a been a pain in the arse when it comes to getting the car with this engine to the strip. Took 9 years to convince him. although he ran his other car without a second thought. It's made 250rwkw@6300rpm and ran 13.2@102mph in a 2050kg car on a street tyre(retread). The engines now in a 1500kg car and I'm still struggling to get him to race it! I've even offered to drive it. I personally think it was a high 12sec car in the 2050kg car. I now think it'll run low to mid 12's in the 1500kg car. It may even dip into the high 11's if at the strip on the right night.

I think Crow make a similar hydraulic cam that makes the same power via 4V heads from memory they may be 2V's. It's been awhile since I've seen the car or spoke to the owner.

Re: cam choice

We need to know what kind of injection and management your are using. Is it programmable?

Is it a street only car?
