Hi there, I've been learning from this and many other forums for the last 3 years whilst building my dream car.

Hoping for some opinions on my custom cam for my build. I have the cam, however my engine builder is shortly starting on the engine, the engine build and transmission are being outsourced, expensive things to mess up 👍. His opinion is its too mild a grind for my goals.

On the cam sheet I listed my Complete build, plus goal of street/strip usage, 525hp/tq.

Build as follows

67 stang
10.44 to 1 compression
95 Ron uk petrol/gas
1974 351 block stroked to 408
6208 long tube headers 1 3/4"
Weiand stealth intake (to keep under stock indicator hood)
3" dual exhaust
Lunati hyd link lifters
Crane cams gold rockers
770cfm Street avenger ultra carb
Truetrac 3.25 diff
3/8 fuel line, Victor mech fuel pump with regulator
AFR 205 58cc heads

The custom comp cam supplied, bearing in mind I wanted to get over the 500 hp/tq Mark at the crank has the following details. I'd appreciate some opinions on whether this will be sufficient to achieve what I want. I'd rather deal with it now if it's confirmed the grind will fall short.

Any feedback welcome, it's been a long hard 3 years but getting there now, nearly finished.
