Lift makes more sense. It would be a real mild cam. I would run 1.7 or even 1.72 rr with them.

He said it was a very aggressive cam( not that I believe him 100%) I'm trying to look it up but I can't find it anywhere.

it might be aggressive. its hard saying without knowing what it is for sure. the 286 can still be duration. and if so would be really aggressive.

i once saw a chart online that listed all cam manufacturese cams. with all the specs for them. i kick myself in the butt for not book marking it. but thats what you gonna have to do. is look at comp cams and check there duration and lift on there cams and see if you can find a match.

I actually just found a site with something like that and found the cam. 232/240 duration @.50 and .565/.574 lift. 112 lobe separation. And here's that site. http://southeasternfoxbodies.com/for...ad.php?t=29205.

How aggressive is the cam?

Well this is what I found as far as searching for that duration. If this is what you bought it is a very radical cam. Idk if I would even try to use it.

That's definitly the cam? Cause it doesn't say 286-296

But yes that is real agressive! You will probably have piston to valve clearance. I'm guessing you will have to knotch your pistons for it to clear. But I can't be sure.

Yeah. That looks more right!
You would need serious heads, intake , probably stroked motor, knotched pistons. Whole nine yards.

Sorry I forgot to mention I matched it to the number stamped on the cam. As far as pistons, I'm going to be buying a Stroker kit soon. Any suggestions for pistons?
