OTS cam for low end torque with TFS170's
I know a custom cam is the way to go here, but for the sake of this discussion, lets just talk about off-the-shelf cams.
My combo is going to be centered around a pair of 58cc TFS 170 heads, Cobra intake with Tmoss ported lower, 1.6 Comp Gold RR's, 30# injectors and matching MAF. I have a 65mm TB now, but more than likely will track down a 70/75mm. Exhaust is Shorty headers, catted mid-pipe and flows. T-5 trans (which I need to upgrade)
Goal is just a fun weekend cruiser. Never will see a dragstrip, although I would like to return to AutoX someday (not anytime soon though).
I have a set of 3.73's in the car and am contemplating a step down to 3.27's. However I am going to wait until engine combo is done and reevaluate. I would like to gear the car a little bit better for highway driving.
Now the reason for the thread. I have a TFS1 camshaft on hand. I was all set to use it until I started researching and finding a lot of people saying it doesn't come on strong until past 3000RPM and makes power up top. In my case, just cruising around the street, and even when I drop to 3.27's, this may not be ideal.
So, any other cam recommendations instead of the TFS1. If not, do I run the TFS1 cam regardless with my combo (because I have it?) and will I be happy with the setup in a weekend cruiser? Or should I just pony up and go custom?
