Default Kelford 272 turbo cams gauging interest...

Just throwing this out there, i put my brand new kelfords in today, im not sure i like the lumpyness of the idle. Haven't got to mess with the degreeing yet so we'll see how it goes, but i may just run my stock cams for drivablity sake. These are serious *** cams, so they would be for someone running serious boost on a mid to big range turbo. Built engine and head as well.

If i do sell these i bought them for $650, ill sell them for $550, spec sheet included. Ill know by mid week if i want to sell them or not.

Never got to mess with them, I got conned into rebuilding my neighbors s&s carb for his Harley. I was reading the cam spec sheet and I have them degreed wrong, I'm going to degree them on my break in an hour, should run much better then. Ill post a video.

Got the degree right, car idles mint now. Lumpy as hell but that's to be expected with such a radical cam. Ill edit this with the video on a bit, YouTube is being gay today. The video is on there but not ready to play for some odd reason.

Also, not going sell these, I'm gonna rock them for a month at least just to get the feel, then decided if I want a smaller duration cam.
