These camshaft / lifter kits are perfect for use with SBC 350 to 360 CID with Air Flow Research 180/190 runner heads. Max Power 6000-6200 rpm, Peak Torque 3800. This cam takes advantage of the AFR's Intake to Exhaust flow ratio. This cam maximizes the power of these heads creating a forever-long band of power. To extend power another 200 rpm use 1.6 ratio on both intake and exhaust. 15/8" headers are needed too for this application. We recommend a 2400 stall, a 750CFM carb, and a minimum of 9:1 compression.
