Sorry, I just re read my post and realized I put 1 7/8 tube. I do have a set of those but, the car this motor is going into currently has 1 5/8 tube Hedmans. And a 2.5" x-pipe dual exhaust.

I've been checking out Comps website and like the specs on the XE262H cam.

I spoke to Howard's Cams. Very nice and helpful guy named Eric. I gave him all the specs on my build and this is what he recommended:


.520/.541 lift
235/243 duration @ .050
112LSA

That sounds better, the XE262H seemed a bit small to me.

Those specs look a lot like an Elgin E-981-P AMC Camshaft...
