I'm running a stock 472 in a 69 Caddy hearse with an Edelbrock 1411 carb. headers and duals. Would this cam be a good choice? Just want to be able to keep the stock manifold and converter but get a little more outta this engine. Plan on milling out the center divider on the stock intake at a later date. I'm sure I'll have to replace the timing chain and gears while I'm at it.Thanks for any input. here's the link.
That's the exact cam I had in my 472; I ran it with a manifolds, single 3" with a Super 40 Flowmaster, Edelbrock 2115 intake and Holley 750cfm carb. It's a nice cam even if it is "off brand". I was skeptical at first, but for the money, it was worth a shot. It gave a mild lump but a subtle tone, and performed nicely considering the other upgrades. I would have stepped up to the next level they offer if I didn't plan on driving the car frequently.
I will add that it was REALLY pushing it on using the stock torque converter. With the mods you have and plan on, you should consider stepping it up anyway (TQ converter).
For the buck, it's one hell of a camshaft - entirely streetable. If you don't want 'streetable', go with the next step up. I think I'll grab the higher up model now that budget allows and I've ditched the stock valvetrain
