I'm now shopping for a cam. What cams are you guy's running with speed density? Any likes or dislikes or recomendations? Thanks.

crane makes a lightning specific cam. it is part #@ 444232. it has a 114 lobe sep and usually is good for like 30hp over the old cam.

206/214 duration and .448/.464 lift That will put me @.476/.493 with the 1.7 roller rockers I have. That will keep me under .500" lift which I really wanted. The only speed density Comp cams cam would have put me around .515 lift and it costs more. Thats kinda funny since I pass by crane cams on almost a daily basis in Daytona Beach. I had a bad experience with them years ago and have totally boycotted them til now. Actually I can't say that since that Ford Motorsport cam in my mustang is ultimately made by crane. Thanks again Lightning2fast your the man! My little 351 project is progressing nicely.

Actually, there's another cam out there that is better than the Crane Cam listed above,.......Comp Cams # 35-255-5

FWIW, I used to have the Crane Cam in my Lightning and I wasn't that impressed with it. I have no personal experience with the Comp Cam's one though! I switched to Mass-Air and went went an off-the-shelf roller!
