My Restoration is in the Final Stages and decided to open the wallet and Order a Rd Curtis flowtech Industion Ccustom Camshaft t , also ordered Hyd Lifters, Spring retainers and other parts. Having heard High praise on his Camshafts i figured i should upgrade and seems like a great guy to deal with granted all through emaill, Not sure what my Final HP with but i have a 1966 Fastback with a 1968 302 block. Edlebrock performer Rpm heads, Holler Double pumper, 4150 , Original gt350 intake, Paridise wheel paxton supercharger, flowmaster original 40,s . FPA tri-y Headers and now the flowtech Cam, engine was rebuilt to stock, with only 6 pounds of boost i see no issues. Im thinking it should be close to 400, i will post pics and when car gets tuned and dynoed

Should be good HP out of it. Any idea what your Compression is at, when you say rebuilt to stock?

I contacted him on FB about a cam. I asked him a couple general questions to get a better understanding. He was a real d*CK. I'll buy a off the shelf cam before I'll buy anything from him.

:Yea, he can be pretty terse on a lot of the sites but customers really speak highly of the results with his cams. Another option for a custom is Mike Jones of Jones cams. He recently took over the site SpeedTalk and appears highly regarded. Also a bit less abrasive. He will also do custom flat tappet if someone doesn't want to do a roller.

What did you discuss with him to pick the grind?

What were you looking for as far as results?

I used him for the roller cam for our 347 build. Very good experience and if memory serves me, it shipped out within a week. Now that we have a T5Z in it, I should call him and order another since it was spec'd when the car still had an AOD. I wonder if it would be worth it for a Sunday cruiser??

CRX, tell us the specs when he lets you know. I'm interested to know what they will be. LSG

LSG, I've seen the specs on a couple custom ground cams. What jumped out was the lift. They all were in the .570" range, duration @ .050" were around 220° and LSA at 110°. With that lift I think they're having the intake chase the piston and the exhaust leading the piston for valve clearances
