Part# KB14686 ~ Stage 2 Ford Falcon Crossflow six cylinder hydraulic performance street camshaft custom ground for a tough sounding idle and low down torque. Street Race Cam suits engines with good head work and low diff gears 3.5:1 or lower.
Stage 2 cam’s torque band is strongest from 1800rpm to 4800rpm and we recommend usning a 2200 rpm high stall converter for automatic transmissions. The power range of the cam is from 2400 to 5400 rpm.
This Hot Rod Cams series work best with high compression engines 9.5:1 or better, headers and a free flowing exhaust system, 600 cfm vac sec Holley carb or 650 cfm double pumper carb and an AussieSpeed 4 barrel manifold.
Advance Ground on Cam; 2 deg, Lobe Separation; 108 deg, duration @ .050 inch = 224 deg, Total duration = 290 deg, valve timing INT 39/71 EX 75/35, Valve Lift .500 inch, Power range 2400-5400 rpm. Install straight up on timing marks.
This performance camshaft requires good quality cam followers and new performance valve springs. To get the best out of your new combination you do not want bad cam timing so we recommend new timing chain or new timing gears, especially for those guys with later engines which will have pollution control valve timing.
The standard springs and retainers in these engines are not suitable for non standard applications and must be replaced to ensure valve train reliability. This camshaft is not suitable for engines with pre-crossflow heads pre 1976. The mechanical distributors in these engines have different shaft sizes. The distributor used in your engine must have .001 to .002 inch clearance between the shaft and the block.

IMPORTANT: These high performance components should be checked for suitability by the person installing them as engines of the same group can vary in valve length, spring installed height, and Collet groves.
It is the sole responsibility of the installer to check suitability.
To ensure your camshaft is the correct model for your application place the new cam next to the your old cam and check the following points.
Do the lobes all point the same way?
Are the holes or groves in the bearing journals the same?
Is the distributor gear the same size and angle and position on the camshaft?
Is the fuel pump lobe in the same place on the camshaft?
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INFORMATION
IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTALLER TO CHECK SUITABILITY & RUNNING THE CAMSHAFT IN PROPERLY
This camshaft must be installed with new cam followers and good quality performance valve springs. All engines will vary due to machining so check engine for correct rocker arm geometry and push rod length. This camshaft has a higher lift than standard so check valve springs for coil bind and retainer to top of the valve guide clearance at full valve lift when installed. You also need to check valve to piston clearance and the camshaft timing marks on the timing chain are lined up. All these checks need to be done before you start the engine. Correct cam lube needs to be applied during engine assembly and lifters [cam followers] need to be primed with oil. The lifters should rotate freely in their bores. This camshaft needs to be run in at 2500rpm for at least 20minutes to ensure plenty of oil pressure is present to drown the cam and lifters in lubricant during the run in period. Refer to our web site for more information, specifications, cam set up and tuning tips.
Disclaimer: All performance modifications will most likely alter exhaust emissions. This means that for later model cars that need to comply with exhaust emissions standards you install these performance parts at your own risk.
