Upgrades


I have a 1930 Ford with a bone stock 354 Hemi that is out of a 1956 Imperial. The motor is original except for a Holley 670 street avenger , MSD distributor and a set of Hot Heads outside the chassis headers.
Beautiful motor , doesn't burn a drop of oil, has good even compression and idles at about 450 rpm.
It performs well for what it is but I would like to get a little more out of it.
I am considering a HH solid lifter cam ( recommendations anyone ? ) and a HH aluminum intake.
Would this wake the old girl up ? Not looking to set the world on fire but more power and a little "attitude " at idle would be nice.
Trans is a 727 (post 1966) and rear is 3.25 . The car itself is very light of course the engine weighs a ton !
Any thoughts ?

Pete

Pete: When it comes to cams, it is always better to give us a call. Thanks,
Bob

petew: All of the flat tappet cams Hot Heads sells except for #22008 are Isky cams. Thanks, Bob

Thanks Bob , that's good to know.
Based on my set up which of your solid lifter cams would you recommend ?

Pete

Thanks Dave,
I am looking to get more low end and midrange power .
So you think I should go with an ISKY Cam instead of one of Hot Heads offerings ?

What you are looking for is a bit more "volumetric efficency" . Nice Isky Cam , Hot Heads four barrell manifold very straight shot into motor . Efficient exhaust system.
A cam has more "control" over the engine than other parts. Where do you want your power? Low end around town or high speed highway? Isky will ask you that .
