you can look it up. If you need it on a small base circle for rod bolt clearance
call comp to order it (.900" cam base circle)
Call comp to get the right valve train for it.

If you are not going to use race gas build it with a real 10.5:1cr

The IK 200's clean up nicely from the out of the box as cast form.

Note the hot lash is .026" .028"
When you set the lash cold set it at .022" .024" "cold" Do not use junk valve springs.
Use what comp recomends at minimum. Call for tech advise. Thats what they are for.
This is a good street strip roller for your 400 and purpose.
Big enough to make some power for the track but not so big to be a street machine cam.
the 3500 stall and 4.10's will work with this cam, in a 400.
A cleaned up port matched vic Jr or a Super vic or a Hurricane with a port match and a spacer all will work good for you. 750HP carb ok.... 850-1000 HP best

Keep the compression ratio under 11:1 for pump gas.
