I'm new over here but I hear you guys know your small block tech pretty well.My question is this:do you think this cam is going to be right for my combination? The specs are: 254*@.050",.560"lift,106*LSA.It's a Clay Smith solid-lifter design.Moneymaker may be familliar with the 'California Colt' SuperStock car it was developed for in the '70s.
My car is:2800lb '66 Mustang coupe,306ci,polished stock rods,stock crank,professionally ported 271hp service replacement heads w/1.94/1.60s,Holman/Moody dual plane intake,ported & divider dropped,approx. 10:1 comp. ratio,600cfm Holley Double Pumper,Toploader 4-speed,4.11 0r 4.30 gears(depending on cam choice),5 leaf springs,shelby under ride bars,235/60-15 Drag Radials.
Am I pretty close to the mark with this cam,or am I out in left field?Thanks for your help.
