cam 100+HP

Can a .492/.492 cam in an lt1 or any other motor (1986 305) give you at least 100+HP?
(I heard this from my history teacher and just got me wondering)

No, that is quite optimistic.

I agree. You would need to rebuild the entire top end of the motor to get that kind of gain.

Agreed with other replies. there are more factors than just a cam that make horsepower. head flow, valve size, chamber size, intake manifold, carb, etc.
