I currently have the 280 magnum in my engine, But I think that the cam is a little on the big side considering my heads are stock. What is everyone's opinion on the 270 magnum cam. How is the idle, Is it still a rough idle in a ford small block? How is the power range? Thanks in advance.
Hey there. I installed a 270 magnum in my 302 with world jr heads (in my 65 fastback). It is real lumpy and goes very well. I could use a little more though and would like a 280. Seems to me the 280 might be a bit much for stock heads w/ small valves.
the 270 is a good street/strip cam with the emphasis on street. a good compromise between the 268 high energy and the 280 magnum. i would however seriously consider a head upgrade to the windsor jr heads with the 270.
