For me? Way too wild. Depends on what YOU're looking for.

Hey Chuck, Haven't heard from you in awhile. Hope all is well. I don't know anything about Howard Cams, good or bad. I used an Edlebrock cam from summit when I built up LA360 for wife's 59 dodge. It's just a cruiser, no high speed racing involved. So it works good in this application. They do have an assortment of different 'lift and overlap' cams available. Jerry

nothing big , just a good sounding street ripper . when i opened my 383 magnum clone top end ( not all the way yet ) i found 1 collapsed lifter and stopped til i get all top end and cam parts and pieces . it has
@ 5000 miles on a rebuild by previous owner , so said to be . my thinking is that a cam with 500 or less lift will work well for my wants , along with the cam matching parts , which is why i'm looking at the cam
above . if i remember correctly a 69 383 magnum has a lift of @ 450 , 268-283 duration

jerry , i'm doing ok not perfect but ok . a while back i had to have some new heart plumbing since my open heart , 6 way bypass was almost exactly 10 yrs old .
now i have a pacemaker-defib and a new stent

That cam in a 383 should be plenty. Hopefully this a 4-spd car.

The original Magnum cam has 115° lobe centers, the Howards has 112° lobe centers which will produce a choppier idle and less off-idle drivability than the Magnum.

thanks , but no hilltown i haven't . as of now i'm gone forward with the howards . the biggest reason is cost and matching parts . so its a win , lose or draw situation from here . from what i know and things
forgotten but i've read up on , it should be ok for my wants ,,, thanks everyone ---------------------------------------------------------------later
