Default 63 fairlane build **Camshft 1-3 build starting on pg 4**

So i have read just about every post online regarding this issue and I still do not know if i should use this camshaft in my build. build info.

289 .040 over
289 heads with 1.84,1.54 valves 53cc
10.05:1 CR
C90X intake
Autolite 4100 1.12
Tri Y headers

Motors going in a 63 fairlane with 10T 4speeed with 3.50 gears. Possibly going to 3.80,4.11 if needed.

The cam in question is the c7fe-6250-a Lemans cam. I have a TRW\Speed Pro version of it already.

Can I get some real world advise from guys who have run this cam and why they Loved it or hated it.

Car will be a Friday Night\weekend warrior car. Might drive it to work once and a while.

Thanks in advance

Not a very good choice in my opinion, 3500 - 7200 RPM cam very rough idle, 430 gear or more.

Something like this would make more sense, similar lift, better lobe, much less duration.

I would go with the one you have looks good and should have that classic sound.

Valve size and headers added.. Have contacted Comp Cams and worked out a custom grid Solid lifter also.

Specs are

110 Lobe Sep
Dur@50 230 IN 236EX
valve lift .522in .536ex

But already have the above stated cam(in OP) and have heard so many conflicting story's regarding the Le-mans cam.

Hoop98 Is the 282S a modern version of the HIPO cam

If the car is going to be a weekend warrior, I would go deeper than 3.50's in the rear. 4.11-4.30 would be my choice (and was in my 27). It let's the engine get into it's power band like immediately.

Don the car has 3.50 in the rear stock! so that s what I'm working with already. Maybe I will have to do the T5 swap after all and run a set of 4.30's would make the car i little more useable.

Default Re: Sbf 289 Camshaft Question

why would you want a solid cam on the street ???
go hydraulic set it and forget it
I would use the comp cams xe268h with upgraded springs
and roller rockers
600 cfm holley or edelbrock carb
with a performer rpm intake or F4B intake
engine will make great power from about 1500 rpm to 5800 rpm
4.10 gears and hang on!

That cam is designed for a light car. 2000 lbs or less and a rev limit of around 8500. It will be a bitch on the street to keep cleaned out. It is also designed for lots of CFM. Fords 2x4 set that was used on that cam was 2 - 600 holleys.

Good friend of mine drove a 67 Mustang coupe daily with a 302 and a Lemans cam. ( About 7-8 miles to work and back, it was his only car at the time, we were 19) I built the engine for him Torker 1, 650 Holley, 3.55 gears 2400 stall in the C4. Heads were ported 289 w/ 1.94x1.60 valves. Car ran 13.10's on street tires 12.70's with a 100hp plate shot. Run that cam you will love it.

I've used the Ford Muscle Parts C90Z-6250-C, hydraulic version of the 271 HP solid lifter cam, and it works great.

Guess I should have put this in the first post also, Heads have been opened up to 2.10 x 1.28 on the intake side and 1.60x1.20 on the exhaust, bowl blended with screw in studs and roller rockers. Pistons a forged flat tops, rods are are C3AE's that have been shot peened and magnefluxed fitting with ARP bolts and the whole assembly has been balanced. Along with the fact that i will be running a 24" or 26" tire which will put me in the 3000rpm range all day with the t10 in third at 45 to 50mph
