The car has 5000 miles on the clock and is exclusively used as a street car / Autox’r. The only thing I know about the cam currently in the motor is that it is a Crower custom grind. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the data card from the builder at the time, and he is no longer in business and has moved to the other side of the country. The motor idles around 700 rpm but it's a rough idle with a lot of engine movement, and it’s pulling only 10-12” of vacuum. Above 2500 rpm the thing pulls like a freight train and is putting out 410 rwhp. The rough idle however has caused reoccurring header fractures and side-pipe rattles despite a flexible side-pipe hanger system.
I know cam choice is a compromise, but I want something that’s going to have a tamer idle while maintaining as much of the performance as possible. I plan to contact a couple of cam manufacturers to see what they recommend, but I’d appreciate any input from others familiar with this type of engine build on what you’ve seen work well. What particular specs should I be looking for? Any recommendations on a specific cam from those that have a similar engine set-up?
