Picking a Camshaft

Post by bmax998 » June 27th, 2018, 7:09 am

Hi all so I’m pretty new to this whole engine building thing and I have still so much to learn. However, something I just can’t wrap my head around yet is what to do with all the components from the camshaft up to the rockers. Can someone help me out?

Here is what my build is so far:
4.6L, .030” over bore, 4.2 crank w/ rods and 4.0 pistons
Also with the machining, i got a 3-angle valve job done on the head.

Can anyone help me out it terms of what to pick or even how to figure out what I would need?
Thanks ahead of time! :D

One of the determining factors in selecting a camshaft is if you're willing to upgrade your valve springs and retainers. Typically that cost will be between $250.00 to $300.00

Shoot me a call or email and I'll be happy to advise and discuss a valve spring and camshaft upgrade.
