Lunati 10001lk Barebones idle question

Here's the specs:
•Advertised Duration (Intake/Exhaust) 280/290
•Duration @.050" (Intake/Exhaust) 214/224
•Gross Valve Lift (Intake/Exhaust) .443"/.465"
•Lobe Seperation 112
•Intake Center Line 107
•RPM Range 1500-5500

Just curious if this cam would have some lope at idle. Can't find aything on youtube. Obviously it's not going to be a thumper, but maybe a little lopey?

Barely lopes with 400cid. Fair lope in a 283. Find something with no more than 110 lobe separation.

So as far as a 350 goes, very slight lope then?

If you found a cam with a 106-108 lobe separation yes it will lope more, with your specs, it's not much more than stock, so in a 350 this cam will probably have very little lope to it with a 110

Yeah, I wanted to go with the 10002lk model but I fear it's a little too agressive for my set up. I only have a 2300-2700 rated stall, I'm using 462 camelbacks with 1.94 intake, 9.35:1 federal mogul flat tops, in a 350 60 over. I feared that that cam with an rpm rating of 2000-6000 would require some more extensive valvetrain work, and heads that flowed a little better than the 1.94's, hence I decided to step it down and not overcam my engine.

In the end I was hoping for at least a little rump in the idle. Lunati said it does lope a little, "you will definatly know theres a cam in there", but who knows. I'm not building the engine based on how "lopey" the cam is. I really want this engine to be a good street motor that performs when I want it without having to worry about something breaking. If it keeps up with my buddies 383 shop built cutlass motor (that I think needs some tuning personally) I'll be happy.

Guys correct me on this, but 2300-2700 stall would like a little more duration on the cam right? What rear gear and how heavy a vehicle is this 350 going into? If you really want the car to boogie when the skinny pedal is smashed, all of these (and more) need to be closely matched.

A mild street cam using those heads you will not need excessive head work done... For the package you have the stall matches pretty well with your rpm range.. If you want a cam with a bit more lope within your rpm range power range, look into a cam that's got around 280-300 duration with 460-480 lift at 108-110 lobe seperation and around 225-230 lift at .050.. These make good power in the low to mid upper range good for street and occasional strip use if wanted. With out doing alot of head work. You can do some head work to help increase HP but by then you really would have spent enough for a pair upgraded heads..these are just my thoughts..

Also you might figure in gear and tire size ad well.. What rpm the engine wil be running at 55-60 mph this also help in what cam you need

Engine is going into a 1966 buick skylark. I have stock gears (I think 3.55), and the stall was recommended by lunati themselves. They said around 2500 stall works best with the 10001lk cam. The heads are about 62-64cc, this is merely based on most websites. This is also kind of a budget build. With the block being machined, crank being polished, rods being balanced, new lunati cam and lifters, new jegs torque converter, camelback heads ($250 ready to go from an old drag racer), flat top pistons, and other etc items, I have spent a total of $850 and some change. I already have the intake and a holley 750 carb, although I think the carb will be too much. I have numerous posts though pertaining to all my setup and don't really want to beat a dead horse in this thread.

You have a good stall. Perfect for the street.. Anything over 3500 is not good for the street, and a 3500 is pushing it. In my opinion 2500-3000 stall works good for mild street aplication

Yeah, I think my combination is going to be respectable on the street. I used the lunati voodoo idle-5000 cam and really loved it. Real hard takeoff for such a small cam, just didn't have much after 4k rpm, granted It was in a bone stock sbc with dished pistons and crap 76cc heads. This car is by no means a race car either. I mean I'm putting a car seat in the back for weekend cruises (my 2 year old loves riding in the car). I just know that when I hear a lopey car, I start drooling. Thanks for the info guys.

On a side note, I'm going to be changing my gears soon. What's a good ratio for this setup (10001lk cam, 2300-2700 stall, turbo 350 trans)? This car will see some highway time.

3.73 maybe a good choice but that's clearly up to you

that 1st cam you listed is like the summit 1103. it will only lope with a 350 at 8.5:1 or lower CR. and that's not the right cam for a 8.5:1 350. with your 9.3:1 350 it will not lope. are your 462's pinned or have screw in studs??? if not, try to stay under .480 lift. I've had .465 lift (summit 1103) pull pressed in studs out of stock gm heads. looks like you have a good stall for a lopey soundin cam. this crane cam 274 H06 Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshaft for Chevrolet 1957-1987 V-8, 262-400 has a great sound, pulls good with a small stall and will work with 3.55 gears, but pulls low vacuum. some will have to ran a vacuum can with this cam, some don't. here's another one of my favorite cams, for sound 278 H10 Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshaft for Chevrolet 1957-1987 V-8, 262-400 will work with what you got, but pulls more vacuum then the H06 cam, sounds great, and good lift for your 462's. summit has both of these cams at a cheaper price. you could look at the howards low lift rule cams. 223 dura. @.050 tappet lift, .450 lift, they have them with 106, 108, 110, and 112 LSA. IMHO, the 110 LSA will be best for you combo. keep researching. good luck rick
