Lunati 268/276 street 400?

http://www.lunatipower.com/Product.aspx?id=1984&gid=287


Hydraulic. The most awesome 268 cam ever produced! Out-powers all others! This High Performance street cam likes 2400 RPM stall, 700 cfm carb, dual plane intake and headers. Makes un-equaled power to 6200 RPM with proper valve springs. If you're looking for a Very Strong cam with great street manners then this cam is it.
Advertised Duration (Int/Exh): 268/276
Duration @ .050 (Int/Exh): 227/233
Gross Valve Lift (Int/Exh): .489/.504
LSA/ICL: 110/106
Valve Lash (Int/Exh): Hyd/Hyd
RPM Range: 1800-6200

anything bad to say about this cam? I plan on buying one 2maro. I really think my current cam is 2 big for my use of the car.

camshaft design is a part of fuel economy,not all of it. I have no idea what cams cost where you are.you need to determine how you want your engine to behave and match to the parts already in the engine.You know we need to know your CR: ratio and where the pistons are in the block at TDC and what gaskets you are using. a 400 should just fry tires in a little car

You'll have the same problem with that cam. With today's oils, you've got to watch what you run. Are the valve springs going to work with this cam? A roller would be better, but I know what you mean on difference in price.

110245-10 CL110245-10 278 284 225 231 .500 .510 110 106 Hyd. Hyd. 1,2
1600-5400 Fair idle, Street/Strip. Auto OK with 2500+ stall.
this hydraulic roller would make a lot of power
put on a set of 180 CC aluminum heads and go low 13s -high 12swith a 3 speed and 3.55 gears

what does that sound like compared to mid 14s?
