525a, seems like it should have a wide power band and be pretty snotty on a 106. Is my 3000 stall and 411's enough? Just wondering what your thoughts were?
I think that would be a "very snotty" on the snotty scale. Pretty snotty would be a few steps down and probalby not have oval track in the discription.

Wide power band and oval track are not terms that cam manf. Use in the same sentence. The further you push the rpm band the further away they are for being a match to your heads. But that being said i no nothing about how well they actually flow. Seems like even ported 1.94 valves would fall off around 6k and really your cam should as well. With solid you will still be able to rev it a little harder to cross the line if need be. If your looking to over cam the engine just to push it and grab a few more ponies then Bingo!
