View Full Version : what 1275 cam to use

10-16-2010, 10:39 AM
After repeatedly watching and listening to Gundy's video of his BE with a lumpy cam, well now I want one. I admit I don't know much about these motors, so what is there to choose from out there. And how much lift/duration can I go with and keep the car driving like normal?

There is a bit more than the cam involved in Screamin' Mimi's
engine. What works in a 10-1, custom head etc, 1380 may not be
the best choice for a stock engine.
This is a link to some info about choices. It's a Minimania
pdf. I'm using a "hot street" cam by Elgin.
Page #24 has a cam discussion.
Hap, just to name a friend, and many others here have WAY more knowledge than I.
I just pick their brains when allowed.


Some neat stuff and discussion in the pdf.

Hope you find some answers.
