I find it difficult to sort out the price of a specific camshaft on that site. When the specs are shown, the part number, like VT XX is not shown, just the model like #15 K etc....
Maybe I'm too old to figure it out ! :D

And the typse described as "Thumper" may not what I would like to hear (?) Lumpy would be Ok though.... ???

Low RPM? I thought these motors were great for a low rpm engine. Im confused :boggled: , i guess low rpm is an oppion. I tought if i turned up my motor past 5k it was revving high? please help me understand as i dont know Nothing. If my plan was to have a highway cruiser and Gheto Blaster wouldnt a #15 cam from mts work? Everyone must have lied to me? Please help me understand.

PJ,
I don't know what your definition of "ghetto blaster" is. How does that tye into automotive performance? Cadillacs are (relative) low speed torque motors. Stock motors are in the 400 lb/ft region in the low 2000 rpm range. With your cdar weighing close to 1/2 of what the 76 the motor came out of you probably have a hard time keeping tires on it as is. I understand that the current think is that if you are able to destroy the tires while going no wheres you are excelling at something, but exactly what is it you are trying to do?

ROFLMAO(Ghetto Blaster)
Around here i have to drive through the Latin Kings, Bloods, drug dealers ect. Im not going to be poking around like grand dad on a sunday stroll, even on sundays.
Thanks to you and others ive kept my build cheap. Only cause im broke!! hahaha.
I wanted a car that will push you back in the seat at any normal speed, hug the corners, and have a deep tone. I wanted a very fun daily driver. Use it for commiting(3 mile to work,lucky me) but still spin tire if i wanted to(not that i can afford replacing them with college tuiton)
and with the caddies reputation for dependability im golden.
Now if i could just get this th400 done, Id be very happy :D
edit: If you lived here you need/want performace to "Ghetto Way" :D :D :D im so funny
