    Looks like a good cam for that set-up, whats your compression ratio?
    If you can afford it go with a solid roller though, there is no comparison.

    Still running solid's

    The car is an Altered w, 32 Bantam body. 377ci w/ .225th dome's. I run this car in a nostalgia class. Was actually thinking about running a little more lift due to the head's I am using. The car w/ a 5.14 gear run's low 6.20's off the handbrake in the 1/8th. I was thinking of moving up around .580-.590ish. I can do this safely. What do you think as far as a roller goe's would be a good choice w/ these head's? Kris

    still using solid's

    No, this is a 306s comp cam. I believe you are thinking about 285B-6 cam, possibly w/ .532int./.555exh.. Yeah that is a real nice piece. Kris

    Use the lifter with the lazer hole in the bottom. You can run more spring pressure and your cam will like it also....

    I ran this cam for a couple yrs. it worked great in a heavy car, lot's of low end and up too 7200rpm. Don't know how good it would be in a light car though. I spent close to $800.00 went roller and picked up less than a tenth with a .626 roller. Just keep the springs around 140lbs seat pressure and i agree with sg1586
    on the pressure oiled solid lifters.

    Look for a cam with a tighter LSA, 106 would be good. Lunati still has a good selection of on the shelf FT cams. Lift as much as the springs will hold. How much converter?
