I would guess that you need a cam that gives torque early, like an rv/towing cam. I doubt you will have any piston clearance issues if you got the pistons that are correct for the crank.

Oh, and welcome to the Iowa Chapter!

393 stroker

Thank you, and I did a little more research and decided to go with Lunati's 61002 cam. I think its really going to work well for my application and the price wasnt bad. I got the cam and lifters for a little over 210.00 bucs. I'll keep you guys posted on the build. I have to take my Eagle rotating assembly to get balanced today and that also is going to set me back a easy 200.00!
