Stock cam

So every time I get in this forum, I talk about cams and always change my mind. Well I've come up with something else. I've been entertaining the idea of trying to test the limits of a stock cam. I'm talking basically TF top end kit minus the cam. Possibly doing an S-trim and 5#s as well. I already have most of the supporting mods, meaning full bolt-ons. More than likely need injectors and thats it. I think this setup could easily push 400-425 at the crank. Anyone wanna weigh in?

Do you mean physically test it? Until something breaks? In your own car?

Not talking about breaking anything. I don't really understand how you can break a cam. The idea is to just see how much power I can make on a stock cam. Would be cool if i could run high 11s on a stock cam IMO. It's just an idea though. I don't see very many Fox or sn95 cars running stock cam in my area.

It's doable, you just won't get all the power out of your combo without changing cams. There are turbo cars out there with stock cams that are well into the 11's. The trick is most of them turn up the boost to compensate for the lack of lift and duration of the cam, and you run into how much the stock bottom end will take.

I won't lie though for a stock cam they do have somewhat of an aggressive note to them. I get asked all the time if I have an aftermarket cam in mine.

+2, that'll also let you get some more air into those cylinders and take better advantage of that forced air!

Yep. 1.7r was the idea. What is the difference between TFs Twisted Wedge heads and the Track Heat heads? Price difference is 100$. Only difference i see is the Track Heats are rated to .600 lift while TWs are rated to .540 lift.
