You will not be happy with the way an oversized camshaft makes for difficult chugchug-glugglug000chugchug idling which is difficult to bring down to do adjustments on...unless you're takin' er to the track everyday is a compulsory waste of time and money.~

your best bet is to go with a mopar performance cam they are smooth. I run them in my cars. I have a small block 360 with a 474 lift cam and its a 4 speed, its no different to drive than a stock car just a lot more pep and less mpg

Thanks for the fast response. Alan
