Any cam that idles the way you want your car to is going to make your car a total dog that is nothing but a big PITA to drive unless you do the things F-Bird '88 has been trying to tell you. You really should listen to him, the guy knows 305's.

Can I get into trouble if I disconnect any of the... — Yahoo! Autos

Emissions controls were first used by the factories in 1967, so buy yourself any make or model that's 1966 or older and install any rump-rump cam that you want to.

Realistically? It could end up in the single digits but probabaly low to mid teens. I have known SOOO many guys over the years that have done what you're wanting to do and turned decent running cars into total turds.

The ZZ4 cam doesn't even have that much of a lopey idle, even in a 305. I'm putting one in a 305 for my truck BUT I'm building the engine from the block up to make use of the ZZ4 cam with Vortec heads, flat top pistons, 9.8 to 1 compression, aftermarket intake, Tri-Y headers and my truck already has the torque converter and gears to make it work. I'm counting on NOT hearing much cam.

I dont care about emissions controls the only thin i still use on my car is the o2 sensor i already took off my smog pump and i dont have a MAF and my car runs great.

I guess i need to ask this now is their any bigger cam that will work with my stock computer if i have to do valve springs thats no big deal that is in a OE motor.

My stock cam is 178/194 @ .050, .350"/.385", 109* lobe seperation 112

That cam is so small you can yank it right out without removing the lifters.

It's not about how clean your motor runs, it's about breaking the law. That makes you part of what's wrong with America. Nobody said that you have the freedom of choice to obey some laws and scoff at other laws that don't fit your lifestyle.

Moderators, don't get alarmed, I'm done on this thread.

I know the ramjet is EFI but summit which has the cam says its not computer controlled i like the cam for $175 its sweet. If you say that cam will work thats what i will get and i would like to know what size valve springs i need and would a port and polish be a good idea.
