Has any body run the #8 Solid lift cam from midwestmotorsports? they gave me all the numbers but i was wondering what kind of vacume it pulls with a stock 350 bottm and 462 double hump heads and a 2 barrel rotch.
The numbers look impressive but we have a vac rule so anyone who has ran it please let me know.

i don,t know of any cam rule that is going to apply. it's a great cam but your not even going to get 10" of vac in a 350. unless you do some of the tricks to increase the vac. i would love to hear some one tell you how to get it and i'll put mine back in. it's a wicked good cam coming off the corner.

Do a word search on the vaccum topic. I saw some pretty cool tricks, but we don't have a vaccum rule so I haven't tried any.

Its a good cam but I don't know how much it pulls for vaccum. I would doubt it would pass,if your vac rule is very high. I would call them up the might know

I asked them about the vac and the guy didn't say anything I guess he didn't want to miss the sell. well boys I appreciate it I want to run a class that needs to pull 15 inches so I guess that one sits in the corner until I move up another class. I have a solid cam that pulls 16 , but you can waste alotof money trying to find that 15.1 inch cam!!!!
