hi Folks

Thinking of insattling a performance cam, are ther any modifications that go along wiht this or is the installation pretty straight forward? I was thinking with going with a 292 or 294, but might be looking at going with a 300. Any advice/suggestions are welcomed and needed, by th way does anyone have a cam that they want to get rid of for a reasonable price, let me know

Don't go with a re-ground... well some would say they are fine some say not...

What's your current setup? That will provide most of the answers. You need to remove the head to change out the cam. Removing head means probably time for a valve job, new guide seals, check springs, eccentrics, etc. New timing chain tensioneer while your in there. Do all that head work & I promise your rings will start to suk. There's not much difference between a 292 and a 294 (2-degrees and maybe some lift) There is a bit of a difference between the 292 and the 300 though. Again it all comes down to your exhaust, compression, age and condition of your motor, carbs, etc.....

Major consideration is the inlet tract also. IMHO 300' cam is too big unless you are running independent throttle bodies or dual sidedrafts. If running a single throttle body or common manifold then stick with 292 or even a tad less.
