    MY CAM IS IN!!!! For those of you who have kept up with the story.. I got the crane cam, "130052" 272 adv.duration 484 lift. I haven't got to really play around in it yet, but just from driving it around theres a MAJOR difference. :D I did a desktop dyno for it, and it should be making around 200 to the wheels now, as opposed to 140. I figure it's a pretty accurate because I did a desktop dyno with the old cam specs and it came out close to my actual dyno numbers. So I'm sure I'll get it dyno'd asap and let you guys know. :nice:

    With no other mods or tuning, the cam swap will likely gain no more than 20-30 hp at the wheels.

    I'm assuming from your 140 base hp that your 302 is currently the stock 2bbl setup?

    I got my trac-loc from Ebay and had the guy build the 3.40 which he told me came out of a pinto station wagon. He built it and I dropped mine and bolted his in ---piece of cake no mods...

    Its just standard 8" stuff the pumpkins are interchangeable as long as its 8" nothing II related about it at all

    the Trac-loc is the whole differential then a standard 8" ring and pinnion bolts to it available in just about any ratio you want.

    anymore ?? give me a holler

    ps whats your 0-60 time?

    I'm not sure about my 0-60 time but precam my car ran the best of a 16.7. I'm hoping to have it in the 15's now. But the 13 inch tires are **** for drag racing.
