It's an area of interest for me too!
I was more worried about my own "left toin at Alba-koikey" contribution :D
Sometimes the experiences of the road trip supercede the need for apology!

A particular curiosity for me on this thread would be learning of any advancements on headering and scavenging dealing with superchargers in the last couple decades.
I know a ways back people used to exhaust them for the power level more than the size of the cylinder, but after seeing high levels of NA motorsports make things smaller...gets me thinking.

5C465022-888F-42B4-B9BD-3247B7DB7F3A.png Just one added question on Howard’s Cams... So, would this roller camshaft from Howard’s make some big power in a 472?

Thanks,
Bro. Rogelio de la 472 eL Jeepo

If you want I'll help you pick a grind ..that's very little lift for a hyd roller ! And it has way too much ex duration compared to the intake..

PM me if you want help

Custom grind is the only way to go ..
It only takes a week to have one done and in your possession

It's a cam for the "Rumpity-rump, Chugga-Chugga" sound. That's why it's called a "Rattler".

Point is I think they are lieing. Not you or the other cam grinders. Had good luck with them before. 30 plus years ago on other engines. How can they tell me there are no billets? Two grinders that we know of have them? And then advertise custom grinding?

So, just get a big Howard’s Cam, make sure it is bigger than the one you think is perfect, and run it !

Have been saving my shekles for CadCo alloy heads. No sense in spending the same amount for iron. Will also go with a grind with MUCH more lift. Have to talk to the grinders and CadCo.

Saw this on ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Howards-Camshaft-522105-10-2500-6000-583-583-Roller-for-Cadillac-368-500-V8/262107451494?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
Off the shelf hyd. roller, But the price seems a little stiff for just a cam. New to Cads so I don't know prices for off the shelf stuff. I'm a geezer but I will pay attention. What? Turkey? Give me more mashed taters!
HowardsCams/ Competion Products will grind camshafts to YOUR specifications. Here's a cam card of one that they ground for me. Its in a pump gas 537 stroker with tunnel ram with two 830 cam hollers. Its pulls on the carburators strongly. Just touch the throttle and the engine snap revs. Only ran on test stand.
