GREAT MOVE.
RUN A SOLID LIFTER CAM .480 TO .500 LIFT.
DUR. .275 TO .310
ISKY CAMS HAS A GOOD SELECTION.
THOSE ROLLER ROCKERS ARN'T WORTH THE EXPENSE.
A FEW RACERS AT MY TRACK RUN ROLLERS AND ARE NOT ANY FASTER, MOST OF THEM ARE SLOWER.

ABOUT THE DURATION THE .275 WILL WORK BETTER CLOSER TO STOCK SETUPS.
THE .310 DURATION WILL NEED MORE COMPRESSION.
BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER.

I will putmy 588 roller against any cam out there. Why stop at 480 at lift unless you are restricted by cam size for valve length. if you choose not to go full roller b/c of expence the 292f (I think)might be the 292 of schneiders is good too. another good roller cam if you have to stay with stock valves is the crane 510 cam atleast what I have saw from it in a solid roller form. But this is just my .o2

I have run a .540 lift cam and only turning 7,000. When I switched to the .490 now I turn 8,200. Much more power. Running in a 80 toyota corolla 3TC engine. 11.5:1 compression. I have run a 2.3 .465 solid cam and that ran well up to 7,000.
I am not claiming to be 100% right. Just my opinion. That's is what 2FAST4U asked for.

We won four consecutive mini championships with Lunati hydraulic cams. The 32902 cam is .508 lift 252 duration @.050. Buy the kit and save yourself money mixing and matching parts till you get it right or quit breaking parts. Low maintenance too.

We ran solids of various brands but always went back to the trusty Lunati when things broke.

Good luck,
Superdave
