    239/247 cam

    I have a 383 with 215 trickflows, 11.1 comp fast 92`s and my machinest picked out a thunder racing cam 239/247, .624 lift and a lsa 114. Has anyone used this cam before?

    what are your goals with the car? you will obliviously lose power with the 114 lsa but you will pick up driveability. that sounds like a weird grind to me though. i'd call comp cams and get a custom grind

    The cam is already in the motor and payed for. I was just wanting to know what I could expect from this cam. I thought the lsa was a little high myself.

    with a cam that size the 114lsa will still have a decent overlap so it should work pretty good for you.

    The motor and tranny are in the car. I haven`t hooked anything but the driveshaft and it looks like It is about 1" to short. I am waiting for the header guy to call me for some custom header to be made. I`ve had a base tune installed on the computer.

    Do you have any pics of the 280z? I have a friend who blew his t-5 tranny in his 240 and he is going to put a sbc383 in his car.

    If they uploaded successfully go to the pic you want, click on it, go to the bottom lest where the image codes are and copy the bottom one, paste on here. You may send me a link to your account so I can see if I can help.

    I tried adding the img to get them to work try copying the url at the top of the page and see if that works. When looking at the pic the image code under "share this image", the bottom one is what you want.
