    This is a JW spec cam made by comp. I ran it for a year but since swapped to something more mild. This is a lumpy race type came. Lots of top end power.


    TSP 525-10.5 - 246/253@.050 .544/.560 lift.

    The cam card is in the picture with full specs.

    The cam is in great shape, comes with matching comp lifters. Located in vt

    150 plus the ship. It's pulled and readyto go.

    It had a wicked idle. It was in the car when we met at musclepalooza...

    With 23° of overlap it will be pretty choppy

    Any chance you have a video kicking around? Or I could pm you my number. I love big cams

    That cam will be pretty choppy with a rough idle. It will sound pretty dirty. Here's my Riv with a similar cam in it. I also have dual 2.5" exhaust with side dump pipes

    The side pipes amplify that already wild lope. What are your specs on the cam?

    In a heavy car you would probably need 5.14 gears to get it rolling.

    Not sure John?? It came in the car when I bought it. I do really like it though! It has lots of top end power like the cam 436'd skylarks has. It was sluggish in the low end power but I woke that up with one of JW's 9.5" converters, oh man did that ever get this big car going:D. Sorry 436'd skylark not trying to get your post side tracked just trying to back you up with the fact big cams can be fun too! Good luck with the sale.

    Sweet Ride! I love the look of a black 69 Riviera. Sounds great too.
