Ok, I need a cam suggestion for my light street, mostly strip, drag car. My setup can take suggestions as well.

291 double humps: full port and polish, accepts .550" cam, 1.94 1.50 valves
hypereutic flattops
flowtech 1 5/8 primaries w/ 3 inch collector
4.10 gears w/ mini spool
boss hog 3000 stall
27.5 tall tires

I want a rough idle and something hard to hold onto! I was thinking a .525 lift hydraulic flat tappet comp cams magnum?

Any idea what the compression ratio is on your engine? What is the weight of the car that this setup will go into? This will help get a better idea of a cam that will work for you.

When I want another camshaft ...
I call the camshaft manufacturer of my choice and ask them ...
They are professionals at this and they want you to be happy ... so you will be a repeat customer and tell all your buddies so they will be customers too ...

I was thinking something right along those lines myself, that would probably make a good cam for him.
