The Isky Max-1 is the original "3/4 race" cam grind. It is the best camshaft we have found for a majority of flathead V8-powered street rods.

  • Delivers that distinctive hot rod sound, yet maintains good street manners
  • Good low-speed power for stock carb or multi-carb intakes
  • Designed to be used with the 1949-53-style timing cover
