    Default Lunati Voodoo 67003

    Does anyone use this cam or have any experience with it? I will be running about 9.7:1 compression, 2500 stall, 3:73 rear. All my parts seems to match the cams needs well.

    Info on the cam: https://www.lunatipower.com/Product....d=1497&gid=287

    Is this cam any good? Does TA offer something better for my setup? The car will be a weekend cruiser that hits the strip from time to time.

    This board is 0 for 3 on longevity with that cam, 3 Board members lost lobes with that cam, including me. However, I got about 10k+ miles out of mine. That aside, neat cam. Sounded pretty mean, and still had some low end. I never revved the piss out of it due to never getting my fuel system sorted out. Here's a video of my car with it.

    From what I've seen elsewhere.....the Lunati Voodoo line of cams is the brain-child of Harold Brookshire. He is the former owner of Ultradyne Cams.....and apparently, really knows his stuff.

    His former company is now owned by(or part of) Bullet Cams. He had been with Lunati, which was bought from Holley by a private group of investors. Apparently, he's moved on from there as well.

    Not sure why guys are losing lobes, but the grinds themselves seem to make good power.

    Ideally, we'd all be running roller cams.

    I have a similar cam. It is the Popular Mechanics style cam 230-245 @.50 507-502 lift with 1.55 rockers 116 separation. The cam gives up at 5800 but does pull to 6 grand. I ran a best of 13.31@99 373 gear ported heads. 3000 stall. With a 125 shot of nitrous I went 11.81@114. I would try the solid cam from TA. I would try the 112s cam or if you have notched pistons the 212s. I have roller rockers you might not have this and won't be able to adjust this. Adjustable pushrods would work though. My next choice would be the 413 cam that one should rev to 6000 easily.

    No matter how you cut the pie it takes a 3000 stall to get the car moving. I had a loose 3000 stall convertor with the Turbo 350 trans and had 1.71 60 ft times. I have a 2004r trans with a tighter convertor for the nitrous and my 60 ft went up to 1.85 but I do make up for it by the 1/8 mile mark. With the 350 turbo and the loose 3000 stall convertor I was blowing the engine to 5000 rpm and would stay there after shifting.

    I also have a very tight suspension that I had installed for cornering so I think this has slowed the car down some. I think otherwise I would have hit the 12's on what I have but I do not get much movement out of the suspension when launching, except on the nitrous.

    At one time I had a 3500 stall Hughes convertor (255-265@.50 565 lift cam) in and I could only foot brake it to 2800 rpm before it would spin the tires and at that point I would push the car through the beams at the track. The loose 3200 stall convertor I had in would stall to 3000 rpm with the foot brake before spinning the tires.(Lunati 230-245@.50 cam) Now I am using a 3000 stall for the 2004r trans and I can only push it to 2500 rpm before it starts to spin the tires. Same cam in

    In all cases the car would start to pull at 2000 rpm on the street and really even before that. With the 373 gear and 28 inch tire I ran at 3000-3200 rpm on the highway to stay at about 60-62 mph. With the 2004r trans I am at 2300 rpm at 65 mph and the convertor is locked up. I use the lock up style convertor now.

    You are not going to be at 2800 rpm driving on the street with the convertor you have when you are in high gear and going 40 mph. You might be at 18-2200 rpm depending on how loose your convertor is. I had to hit 50 mph before I was going 25-2800 rpm with my loose convertor.

    With the weight of the Skylark it will take at least 2800 stall to get moving fast out of the hole in my opinion. It just depends on the duration of the cam
    I think a 255-265@.50 needs at least 3800 stall. My 230-245@.50 cam needs 28-3200 stall and if the cam is smaller than that you can go down on the stall accordingly. I think you will be ok with the 2800 stall and the 275-60-15 tires and a 230-245 cam but no more on the cam with out more stall. The other thing is it just depends on how loose the convertor is that you have. You won't know until you try it then you can change it to fit your needs. I had a 1.71 60 ft with the loose 3200 stall convertor (350 trans) and a 1.90 60 ft with the tight 3000 stall in the 2004r trans. I make up for this by the 1/8 mark because of the lower 1st gear in the 2004r trans.

    I would definatly go higher then a 2800 converter with your car. Your already running a 3.73 gear, and with this you will be cruising around in the low 3k range already. So I would definatly look into a quality 3200-3400 converter or even higher possibly. A good one won't slip at cruise and light throttle, but will snap to life when you hit the gas. I was running a 2800 converter with my setup with a milder cam then your looking at and it was too tight, your combo is sounding like more of a 4000 to 6000 range. So this is where you want to be, otherwise you will be leaving lots of valuable ET on the track.

    I myself will be putting my 350 setup back together shortly and will be looking into a 3500 converter.

    You should consider going directly to JW here on the board. He gets really good converters for a good prices. This is an area that should not be skimped on, but often is. How many times do you want to drop the trans for converter swaps????

    Some things to consider.

    Exactly Right. I was staying slightly conservative but this is the way I would go too. Actually I would have used a 4000+ convertor when I had the TA 510 cam (3500 used) in but I wasn't as smart then. That cam rocked past 6 grand 390 HP from 5900- 6200 rpm. The Lunati gives up before this.

    Default Re: Lunati Voodoo 67003

    remember guys..this is a street motor....If he were to run on the track only I agree with the loose converter...
    But given he is driving on the street most of the time he really doesnt want to be zooming aroud at 4k. So given the motor and combo he has I would think the 2800 would be best as he will flash at more or less 2800 if his motor is making the power it should and react better to street rpm.
    Just my opinion.....

    You are right, I would start with the 2800 stall for the street. Then decide where to go from there. I had a large cam in that is why I said that I would have gone to the 4000+ stall. He is not looking at that large of a cam. I only gave guidelines on what I had experience with. I drove a lot on the street and would go to the track about once a month or so. He can't go too big of a cam the comp. is at 9.5
