    One of the more powerful cams that came out back in the day, but compared to the custom grinds today, it's about average. Have known a few to spin the engine pretty high w/that cam, but to no real advantage though. The cam has very low lift for it's duration. They sure sound sweet, and put up some excellent times on the dragstrip though....

    so you wouldnt take it over the 5800, people were saying they still felt power at like 6700 i dont know tho. if the cam says 1800-5800 idk why they would take it up that high

    Spinning the engine, with CC-306 of all cams, up to 6700-RPM no less, is a little much. It's specs are; 230/244 .510/.540, and it would defeat the whole purpose of the grind if you ask me. Again, that's not to say that the cam couldn't be taken that high, as I'm sure it can, but the only way to know for sure (in reference to any loss, or gain, in power) would be with a graph....

    As for the 1800-5800 RPM range, that's merely a recommendation on the vendor's part relating to a stock engine. Too many variables to suggest a cam's RPM range before-hand, as a simple change in tune, as well as a change in dynamic/static compression levels, and flow, changes a lot....
