View Full Version : Lunati 455 cams, and advice?
03-22-2010, 12:02 AM
I'm looking at purchasing a few Lunati cams for some stock motors I'm rebuilding. Does anyone have any experience with the 33302 and 33304 cams? I'm looking for a somewhat stock cam but with a little more grunt to wake up 8.5-1 motors. They are also somewhat inexpensive and drop ship without much delay. Thanks in advance

One of the wost things you can do with a low compression engine is over cam it. Unless you converter and gear it up it will be lacking on the low end. I'd say the '02 cam is ok but it is not what I'd call a good stock(mild engine) cam. I'm running a TA 212(218/230@.050") and I think that idles a bit rougher than I'd like.:LAUGH:
The '04 cam has too much lift. Pistons would probably have to be notched.
I've gotten a TA RV12 cam(208/215@.050") well into the 12's and the 212 is on the verge of getting into the 11's, both in a 4250 lb. car, so a big cam is not really necessary to run quick. Both cams pull to 5500 rpm. I'd say the 212 is about as big as you want to go in a low compression engine and in a milder/heavier setup I'd go smaller. I'm not saying the TA's are the only game in town. Just using their duration as guidelines. I'd look into Crower cams because they have a full line from small to large. If you hook up with a dealer maybe you can get good prices off them.

I'll have some info on the Lunati 68001 cam in a few weeks. I'll have dyno numbers too.
