    Default Ford racing cam

    Hi, any one ever use a ford racing cam M-6250-A443 in a jet boat? it seems like an impressive cam. Here are the specs:

    On EFI engines, performance camshafts work only with mass air induction systems.
    May require piston modification for piston-to-valve clearance. Valve clearance should be checked.
    May require different pushrods.
    Hi-Stall torque converter recommended for automatic transmission.
    INTAKE LIFT=.562"
    EXHAUST LIFT=.588"
    INTAKE DURATION @ .050"=234 DEGREES
    EXHAUST DURATION @ .050"=244 DEGREES

    do you know the lobe sep?

    the rest of the specs seem fine for a nice trq mid range cam.

    I can't find anything else out about it. No rpm range, center line, or brief discription.

    As sleeper said, nice mid range cam. But it seems like a lot of work with not much return. What heads, any port work?

    Cool

    The Ford racing M-6250-A443 camshaft is on a 112* LSA. It is a fine camshaft in the right engine combinations. Whether or not it (or most any) camshaft is "good" depends on the engine combination in which it is utilized.

    I think I will listen to him and what he told me over the phone, xm278h! I have a chance to get that Ford cam for cheap, but no need to be cheap.
    thanks!

    Right cam for the rest of the combo is far more important than "price"

    The wrong cam can kill the build.

    That is why I have learned to listen to you guys,(cp,lo), and do it right the first time. I do like Lunati cams more, but that's just my personal opinion, and what I have used in most of my sbc builds. Are the voodoo grinds any better for a BBF than the comp marine grinds?
