Im running a cam with .510 on the intake and .536 on the exhaust. Now i was informed this was a hot cam. I know Ford has a tendency to run hot but i was told i shoud take special measures to keep the engine cool. as of now i havent chosen a radiator or fan. Any advice on whatsetup i should use to keep my baby cool?

I have a much bigger cam than that in my .030 over cleveland and I have no trouble at all, it stays very cool. I think too much timing or too lean air/fuel ratio might make it run hotter though. My car does have a big full width radiator, and an alum. flex fan w/o clutch.
