Who is running a big sollid flat tappet cam?

Post  mudtrucker on April 4th 2012, 10:20 am

I have tried the "search" function with no luck. Anyways I remember reading a build post that I am almost sure was in the proven build section that used a big custom ground solid flat tappet cam. If this is you or you know which post it is or you are running a big solid flat tappet let me know please.

Not sure if you're referring to me but heres mine:

http://www.429-460.com/t4799-my-build-my-fox-transformationlotsa-pics

Go to page 4 and cam specs are there. Any questions give me a shout or better yet give Blake (my engine builder) a shout he goes by IDT-572.

Hope this helps Wink

How big do you consider big? Not every cam will work in every application. My cam is on the aggresive side, but it designed to work with my ported d0ve's. It would probably leave a ton on the table if I used it with my a460 heads.

I thought you were running a solid roller cam not a solid flat tappet. I understand that what is "big" for one combo would be be "small" for another. But the cam that Bigblockfox468 has is in fact on the "big" side of a solid flat tappet and is what I was looking for.

I am running a solid roller. My point was what is the rest of the combo to make it all work? Sometimes big to one person could mean moderate to another. All depends on application. Smile

If your going to run the cam Mike has you need to call me, it's not your typical solid flat tappet.

I remembered that but, I thought you meant BIG ... that is a pretty typical bracket race type camshaft.
Big is like what they used to run in Pro Stock years ago when they still ran flat tappets; something like 286/298@.050" with mid .700's valve lift, Laughing
