The Schneider cam that cam out of the 500 core I got from Justin (Copper Cadillac) is grind # 279-80H 270-280 214-218 @.050" .486" .495" with 1.6 rockers and .516" .526" with 1.7 rockers 110 LSA . This has some run time on it and ran real nice in his street ride. He pulled engine do to other gremlins he was chasing and I got it for a core. The other cam I have is also a flat tappet Hyd. It is by comp cams. Grind # H-226/290-2S-12 .290"-.300" lobe lift. .499" .516" with 1.72 rockers. duration at .050" is 226-234 112* LSA This one is still new un run. Probably start with this one to see how it runs with a 10.0:1 comp and manual trans set up . Then bite the bullet and have a hyd roller ground.

What vehicle(s) do you drive?
1987 Cutlass Supreme 2 door with 500 Cad/Turbo 40
That Schneider cam is so mild I'd only put it in a full size. The Comp grind would be a good starting point for a street machine but you can go bigger still specially with a stick shift. What car is the Caddy going into?

53 Stude , building a slightly modern version of a Studillac. The originals were built back in the early fifties using 53-54 Studebakers. I believe the guys last name was Frick . He built custom cars in the North east, maybe NY area. He would take a customers new Studebaker and replace the original engine and trans with a Cadillac 331 with dual fours and also install a Lasalle transmission. Mine will be 500" Cad and hopefully a 6spd Tremec. and 9" ford for the rear. The tranny is still undecided but the engine is a Go!

The last can will make ok power, it should start pulling good around 24-2600 rpm. Nice clean idle too. But I like the L/S of the first one. I bet it sounds better at idle. Either one will be great in a light weight car.
