It's small enough to work well for those gears and a slushbox

Response to Anybody know this cam?

I hope the LSA is 108-112 (higher numbers being preferred for the slushbox). Even though it is a small cam you still may only have 8-12 inches vacuum at idle ,that's not a big deal though.

I ran a juice cam very much like that one except it had lobes with a little more minor intensity (275 @ .006 225 @ .050) on a 108 LSA When you dropped the clutch in 1st gear it would JERK ! forward about 1 foot max then stop dead and blow the tires off .

A 108 along those lines will have a nice "pop" in the mids a 112 will be smoother throughout .

this was all in a 72 torino which weighs more than your car , but a 72 allows header tubes with more generous radiuses in the bends which has to be worth some HP .

I ran a variety of gears but the highest was 3.89 with a wide ratio toploader 2.78 1st .

on true street radials(275 goodyear eagle st) mine would not launch much higher than 3000 without wasting the tires . It has a traction lock , if you go drag racing with a traction lock add one extra steel .

YOU WANTED THE BEST ?
WELL THEY DIDN'T MAKE IT !
SO HERE'S WHAT YOU GET !
