ap72 You cannot have a rough idle and good vacuum, pick one.

you can use manual brakes or hydro-assist if you don't have enough vacuum. Most engines I build end up requiring that- its no big deal.

DoubleVision It should have a fairly choppy idle. I`m sure it should have plenty enough vacuum for power brakes. However, contacting Lunati and asking is a good idea. Just call me DV, it`s easier.

chevyrally68 Thanks double vision, this cam does look good for my application. wonder how the idle quality is? and the vaccum for booster? maybe i will call tomorrow and talk with a tech at lunati, thanks again

DoubleVision Even so I don`t like to pick cams for others as I`m conservative, I will say that cams today such as the voodoo and extreme energy grinds are far better than the grinds of old. This cam I found on Lunati`s site in the Voodoo line looks good.

chevyrally68 what would you use double vision if this was your set up?
06-21-2011 01:14 AM
DoubleVision The cam will work fine for your purposes. The only thing I see wrong is you don`t know the gearing, the rear gears will dictate how your combo performs. If you gave it some 3.50:1 gears It would work nicely.
Make sure you match the valve springs to the cam.
I wouldn`t use this cam, but that`s just me, but it will work for what you want to do.

will this howard cam work for my combo?

Will this camshaft work for my combination, I would like something with some good low end torque and a nice slight lopey sound, good idle quality with a good vaccum for brake booster for disc brakes.
