Ford priced the same as Chevy - how crazy is that!? Not familiar with them, but many manufacurers use the same blanks to cut thier cams from......CamResearch is the tried and true Ford specialists, but the big names have some great kits as well. I have had good luck with Crane and Isky over the years, but I'm willing to look at another one if I hear good things.....I have to start thinking about what I'm going to do with the 390 I got for the vert.....

Well,...
I believe, I have finally decided on the engine for the 69 351W...
I'm not going to stroke it, I just want to love on it and drive the snot out of it...Too many years have gone by.
So here is what I am going to do.
Rebuild kit:

Heads (have)

cam kit:

Decision made.
Head stud kit:

It won't be the worlds fastest cat. But I have a set of 3.89's in the rear end already. With a T5 (that I also already have) and a hydraulic clutch set up, (that I also already have) It should be a fun enough car for me. Full MSD, currently a 670 Holley (Lemans bowl 715 on stand by) on an airgap intake. Comp cams roller rockers. 2 1/2 inch pipe, with new magnaflow mufflers. 16 inch, 245/55 tires on all four corners.
No more changes! I kept going back and forth between this cam, and the next one, with the .533 lift. But this one has a better description of what I am looking for, and so I am going to go with this.

That will still wake the old cat up quite bit....your lift will vary a bit with roller rockers (assumng you go 1.6 ratio) so take that into consideration.
