      That's a great question Scott! This Performer-Plus camshaft is ground specifically for use with the corresponding Edelbrock Performer intake manifold (#2161 or #3761), Performer Series carburetors, and Tubular Exhaust Systems.

  • Q:

    what specs are any of the cams shown ?

      Here are some details:
      For use in 396-427 Chevy V8.
      Edelbrock's Performer Plus camshafts are part of the total power package when matched with Performer intake manifolds to produce optimum torque and horsepower from off-idle all the way to 5500 rpm. They are ideal for any daily driver, truck, van, or RV. You can expect smooth idle characteristics and improved throttle response and torque. Many Performer Plus camshafts for small block Chevys and Fords are 50 state street legal. All camshafts come with hydraulic lifters (except for cams designed for use with stock roller lifters), assembly lube, and full instructions.
      Duration (in degrees): 292/302, lift: .295/.295 (int/exh)
      Use only stock ratio rocker arms.
      Do not use dual springs.
      Not for 1965-1966 engines requiring grooved rear cam journal.
