I run a stock 2.3 on a 1/4 mile. I really need a cam in a bad way but I am not sure what to get. About half way down the straightaway it starts fluttering and floating the valves what do you all think

Thanks for the alternatives. But If I were to get a cam. What would you suggest. I really have been trying to get one for a long time I can get it over the winter and use you guys's suggestions for the rest of the season I only have 5 races left.

Thanks alot!

There is a place called blaze speed shop , you can do a search for them on the net. a new cam will be about 65$ but you should also replace all the rocker arms and the lifters. springs should also be replace IMO but many do it without replacing the springs. Hope this helps ya out some. BTW the place mentioned above is about the most reasonable I have found

First of all a cam will only help if you get rid of floating prob, i.e. new springs, lifters,valves, exct. the other thing you can do is chang gearing or bigger tires.
is you rearend locked if not lock it this will put a little more drag on the rpms but will not fix prob.
good luck
