Anybody!! I have a 32 Ford and it has a 351C 4V engine installed. I believe it was used sometimes for drag racing it had a Lunati cam here are the numbers on the cam, 51102, P7RH, 708, 529356, 796. It is a roller cam and lifters 1.73 rockers and .080, 8.450 push rods by comp cams. My question is can I tame this engine down to run on the street?It also has a Offy tunnel ram intake. I plan on 2 450CFM holly carbs. I had the rear gears changed from 4.56 to 3.50. I would like to keep the set up thats on it now has anyone ever done something like this, and any suggestions.

It really depends on your compression. Do you know what it is? If you have big pop-up pistons, a smaller cam is just going to make things worse. Find out what the compression is and then you can get an idea of what cam you need.
