The cam gear is compatible with any standard steel or cast iron distributor gear. No bronze distributor needed. This cam is considered an OEM style, meaning it must be used in a roller block; it cannot be used with a non roller block. Other style cams available in our other listings. When using the OEM roller cam, you do not need a cam button, but the block must be a roller block. This auction is for the OEM style roller cam. Much needed camshaft accessories available in our other listings.
This cam is to be used on sbc engines that are equipped for factory roller cams. These blocks came out in the late 80's in the Corvette and early 90's in the Chevy trucks. As you know, all of the sbc roller engines in this era were throttle body or tune port injection. This cam may not be compatible with those setups, but many are using the Gen 2 blocks and running a carbureted setup.
We have used this profile on several different buildups with amazing results. We dynoed a 383 engines running the 210 PC heads that we sell and achieved 435 hp at 5500 rpm with 440 ft. lbs of torque at 5000 rpm. This was at 10.3:1 compression ratio on pump gas. We find this cam to be very versatile and streetable for most engines that are 350 or larger. The cam has excellent street manners, off the line power was great, but do realize that a stall converter of around 1800-2500 rpm is RECOMMENDED, especially in a 350 or smaller setup.
If you would like expert cam recommendations for your engine, contact us (through the "seller information" tab or through our tech line, 423-722-5152) with the information listed below. We will tell you what cam is best suited for you. Running a cam that is too big in a given combination is not only pointless for making increased power, but creates a increased loss of drivability and unnecessary wear on the valve train. You must have sufficient cubic inch and/or compression ratio, coupled with correct size cylinder heads that will allow enough flow, to justify a particular size cam. Bottom-end and mid-range performance are always affected when you increase cam size, but it would be affected even more if a cam selection is over-sized to the point that no top-end power is gained. So choosing too large of a cam becomes a two-fold problem. Tuning also becomes more difficult with larger than needed cams.
