    Default What cam to run?

    I am building a BBC 572 with a 1271 blower with a super chiller and two 1050 carbs. I also plan on running pump gas. Looking for good power but reliable. It's going in a 21 Howard v-drive. Thanks

    Go talk to a grinder and stay out of the aftermarket "one size fits all " Crap. I would recommend talking to a few here for a recommended grind before buying a catalog grind. It takes a grinder that knows what he is doing and what would work best for any certain application! Cstraub would be my first stop. I have a grinder that I have used for ALONG time and never steered me wrong. Be careful and good luck!!!
