Author Topic:   where to install cam
posted May 14, 2004 06:34 AM
i was wondreing where to install my cam.
i have a b-bod with a soild pull bar. the cam i have is ground on a 110 centerline, was wondering if i should install it at 108
i didnt think it would be a good idea to put it at 106 because of the solid pull bar. the cam is not very big its only a 458 lift camshaft. any help or input on this?
thanks Vince

First i would make sure there is not advance ground into the cam before anything. Is it 110 lobe centers or 110 intake centerline, i am guessing lobe centers? I really cant see why the pullbar woudl affect it any? What is the duration of the cam and what rpms do you nned out of it.

it duration is 214@.050 im not sure on rpm
the track is 1/4 mile and i have 650 gears in car. i just bought this car it was run as a b-mod and said it was turning around 6300.

i was thinking that with solid pull bar it would shock the tires more if i put cam in at 106.

im at work and not real sure i about the duration. but i think im close it is a Lunati cam shaft

our rules will only let us have a 450 lift camshaft, and this year we can use a rubber bisquit instead of solid bar.
so have to keep the 450 lift cam
