Sounds like you're talking about my car.On 2002-04-11 19:34, Mach1Morgan wrote:
Basically, if you can tolerate an engine that idles very rough, doesn't start making good power until it's up over 3000 or maybe even 4000 RPM, if you can live with manual brakes, and don't need vacuum for other accesories, if you don't mind a vehicle that eats a lot of fuel, and takes a lot of throttle to get moving. Also, you have to like high stall converters and high ratio rear end gear ratios, and be able to tolerate a loud exhaust system. But, if you can tolerate all those things in your street car, there's no reason you can't run a big cam on the street. Everybody's idea of big is a little different though and so is everyone's idea of what rough idle or high fuel consumption is, so you'll just have to decide on your own how much cam you can tolerate.
