    200006 - JEGS Performance Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshafts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Chop! I put this in a small journal .030 overbore 327, all forged with 10.5 compression, 180 aluminum heads and FiTech 600. This things rocks! It has a really choppy idle that calls all the gear heads. My car has a manual transmission so rev it up and slip your left foot off the clutch at any rpm and hold on. I had this cam in a 350 once but I believe this combo works better in the smaller engine.

    what kind of idle does it have and what rear gear is best for street with 350 trans

    Asked by: ricky earl
    This cam will have a rough idle and you will need a 2500-3000 stall torque converter.

    Where should initial timing be set with this cam for max performance.

    Asked by: 76 Nova
    You will want to start with something like 12 degree advance to start the engine and then adjust it to suit your application.
