Default Proven cam combos 540CI??

I wiped out a cam 2 weels ago when a lifter had issue, soooo.... now I am wondering if I do the upgrade now I was gonna do next winter, or just replace what I have...

What I have now is 547CI Aluminum heads 310 CC runner I am almost positive 9.2:1 with single plane intakes....

The cams now are supposed to be custom grind, I am working on finding out what they are fir sure, but so far came up with ...

114LCA
.578 lift
I think somewhere around 232/[email protected]

whats good for 650-700 HP??

Give Bob Madera a call 585-654-8583. I have a 540 and he did mine and it works very well.

What exhaust? What heads and what do they flow? And it might might be a little bit of a stretch to get 700HP @ 9.2:1 without getting into a big cam.

JimV's 540 cam makes a little over 700HP but that is with his aluminum heads, 10:1 and a relatively mild cam with ~0.650 lift.
I'll see if I can find a cam card. This is just what I have seen on the dyno and it is a combination of everything to achieve what you want.

I always thought he passed out some awesome kool aid, but I dealt with him for a customer and he's a really good guy to deal with and takes all the guess work out of it for the same price of something off the shelf.
