Is there anywhere to get a cam for less than 400dollars?

What are you looking for? New or used? Factory or aftermarket?

You can safely reuse a cam?(guess they be pretty cheap 200+-) I mean I'd like to get something like spinning wheels's stage 1 cam but don't wan't to spend that kinda money really.What about aftermarket(comp cams makes top cams) are they any good? What is max hp I could squeeze outa the stocker. I'd like to get 350+-ft.tq

I think I'd use after market. Factory would be 2ice as much!

350ft.tq is big block territory

I've got a used cam that's in very good condition. It might be a little more agressive than what your looking for, but I'll sell it for $150.

It's know as Stegimeir's big cam. It's got long duration with a fairly low lift. 240/240 @ .050 with something like .491/.491 lift with a 114 lsa. Car won't idle below 900 rpms and you will only have about 7 inches of vacuum, but it likes a lot of boost and will snap to attention quickly and pull hard to 6200 rpms. Tony Serno has the same cam in his SC and usually runs 12.8s-12.5s.

I didn't really care for it and switched to something with less duration/overlap and more lift....some other people like it. It will require tuning to make the car run right with it.

sound's too agressive. But the price is right. What can we squeese outa the stockers do you know? Is there anything bad about using a cam outa another motor?

I've gotten 350ft lbs o torque out of a stock cam. also ran 13.59 with one. but custom grinds are definatly better.
