What cam are you running in your SD car?

Just curious, been looking to get a cam, but not sure which is compatible with SD.

No there are some cams that will work I'm positive of that. Just not sure which ones, and there seems to be some pretty smart people on this site so id figured i would ask.

Well for a NA car, yes. But I might go with a small turbo setup next year, and SD works very well with power adders so id like to keep it. Besides, it runs great right now. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I have a friend of mine with a speed density car with trick flow heads, trickflow Intake, and a stock cam with 1.7 rockers. Built motor too, just not too sure of the specs. 306 maybe? Anyways, car runs 12.3-12.5 all day. So you definitely can do head work.

I see what you're saying though, if his car was MAF then it would react to the changes better, but he also has plans for forced induction

If you have a SD car the VERY FIRST mod you should be doing is converting it to Mass air.

I have plans for forced induction, so I'm keeping the SD.
