I don`t know about these, they are way big on duration. Looks like block splitting high rpm cams to me, thats more duration than Ed had for my 331 afr 185 head combo.

1.56 60ft. 1/4mi ET 11.46 @ 117.12 mph
1/8mi 7.26 @ 93.64
was 3020 lbs with aluminum heads.

+1 on the high duration...my FTI cam has more lift (and more lobe separation for less track oriented) but a lot less duration. I am still keeping my fingers crossed on my xxx block.

Running one of those cams in a stock 302 block is asking for trouble...I have no sympathy for someone that would do such a thing and wonder why their block splits.

Jeez, everyone is afraid of this cam! I dont see how this cam is gonna split ur block. My old stock block 347 solid roller got spun to 7500 rpm all the time! Its all in the tune. I dont think ur cam is gonna be the culprit! Any hoosier, the stage 5 cam is only 1 step above the cam I have now and will be perfect for my afr 205's on my B50 sportsman 347!! B,T, dubs is only 250 bucks!! And I love how I start a thread about trick flow cams, and no one can see past putting an FTI cam in their car. If you really want a good cam you need to contact BULLET cams. How come no one on Yellow Bullet has an FTI cam??

Cap walk kills the stock 302 block...having a good tune just prevents it from happening so soon. You can have the best tune of all time, and if the block is just weak its going to break no matter what holy man you had bless it. Their are plenty of people that have spilt them with a HCI trick flow package and making 330rwhp...

And remember something...Just because Cam X works well in you're aplication, doesnt mean that same cam X will work just as great in another application. If that was the case, everyone would have low 9's on a stock 302 ford built car with nothing more than a HP turbo kit and upgraded fuel on race gas.

No I had afr 185`s and bigger cam and sold it all, and then ported the E7`s I had lying around and put them on.
Car ran 11.20 and 120 mph with the afr`s

That's actually funny.

Those YB pimps have been in love with Bullet for the past couple of years. Before that it was Jay Allen/CI who was "da man" on that site. See a trend? BTW - What you don't hear about on YB is when they replace these almighty bullet grinds with another company.

As for those TFS cams - they sure are slow-ass lobes. Cheap and more than likely, based off the same lobes they've been using for a long time. Worth a look but they are not something special.

Should RPM well with a stock hydraulic roller lifter and a decent spring but there are better SBF lobes available, and they ain't from Bullet.

Heaven forbid somebody decide they don't want an OTS cam. What's wrong with people sharing opinions and experiences? It is a public forum is it not?

If someone gave me a free custom grind cam and told me all I need to do is rave about how good it works. I would rave about it as well...

You need to realize alot of them guys on YB are sponsered race cars and get alot of freebie parts.

This forum is mostly made up of weekend racers who BUY their own cams. and that my friend is why FTI has such a good following here, lots of very satisfied paying customers...

Looks like a driveability nightmare. I would take faster lobes given the choice. All that slowness and duration for 7000rpm? No thanks.

My brother had a stock block with notched pistons for 351 heads and 1.94/1.60 valves and a B-302 cam back in the day. Had nothing more than ARP rod bolts and he spun it to 7k at the track for around 2 years before pulling the engine and selling me the car. (parents didn't want their 16 y/o with that engine) ((little did they know what was hiding under my bed at the time))

Anyway, I have no input on those cams.

Didn't Mark at Bullet get fired from Comp for stealing the winning racers cams and selling them for profit? If Bullet has good NMRA cams because they stole the specs, that is not really a good thing?

Ed's right, not many of the NMRA or NMCA guys use BULLET, they use Comp Cams , heck if I was gonna get paid $300 for a win I would have their sticker on my car !!

John Macaluso, the street radial champion for 2008 and 2009 in the NMCA used a bullet cam and he was by no means sponsored by them. He just knew what it was gonna take to win. And yes, MARK spec'd out the winning cam for him.


And BTW that had a 357 cubic inch motor, .550 lift camshaft, and BFG radials!!! And it was 3200 lbs! I think it had one of them "slow" cams in it with high duration.

Here is a stock block flat top 347 10.5:1 with an s trim making 8 lbs of boost. Now how is it that this 500rwhp car can get it done, but you guys are saying that this particular cam grind is gonna cause the block to split? Either there is somethin in the water down here or you guys just dont know what the phuck your doin!! BTW this guy is from the same camp I am, so I know everything about his car.

Most boosted cars are not spun to 7k rpm and the cams are normally much smaller than your trick flow #5
I have a block with #1 main cap that don`t set straight anymore and it was all rpm that did it.
Unless you pull your engine apart every year like me you would never know whats going on inside.

I'd say there's more to be said for how it's put together than to say a certain cam will split the block. I'd bet block's have been split with mild cams too.

I hear people talking about spliting blocks at 330 rwhp and it blows me away.
Stock block 347, TEA TFS 205 heads, Super Vic intake, Pro Systems carb, custom Diamond pistons 14:1+ cr, 250+psi cranking pressure, solid roller cam out of a friends old setup......motor is waaaay down on power (354rwhp). Guy keeps driving it because he says it was "tuned on a dyno". Approx. 50 street miles and a few track passes and the block is split. Sooooo..... what went wrong in this whole deal?

Either there is somethin in the water down here or you guys just dont know what the phuck your doin!! BTW this guy is from the same camp I am, so I know everything about his car.

The cam is not what spilts the block, spinning the motor to 7k+ is what splits them. And using a cam that operates from 3400+ is just non sense when the block is very well known to split past the 6500 mark.

Most people who splits blocks are manual transmission cars who miss shifts and bang it up to 7k+ a couple times and that lites the fuse. Before long the bomb goes off...

I will not put my hard earned money into something a guy on youtube or some forum says works for his car...I go off the majority poll, and the majority is the stock 302 block splits very easily if spun past 6500rpm, period.

That statement is dumb, you think given the fact he didn't have rules he would have used a cam like that? Given 99% of us don't class race, we don't have to use lesser parts to fit in the rules, so why would you want to?

Farrit, you have problems, seriously. The guy is a smart cam guy because he steals cam specs? What if he never had worked at Comp?

This is my most recent time slip. My combo is a ALL MOTOR flat top 347, HR cam, 3200lbs, with a 5 speed on NITTO drag radials. And I drive it 50 miles to the track!

My car is the right lane

Wow, this is the most intelligent statement yet!! I think we can all agree that it is the power level and the way it is put together that will determne the lifespan of the block!! I personally have seen lots of high horsepower combo's with stock blocks. My experiance is that once the car is faster than 10.20"s your days are numbered.
