  • Whiplash cams, anybody tried one?

    I've been looking at Hughes Engines Whiplash cams and like what I see. They are made for low comp motors and are designed to increase cyl press. They told me I can use my stock converter and gearing too. They are supposed to sound good at trafic lights and smooth out around 1500 RPM. I'd like to do some upgrades to my 75 Cordoba this winter and keep thinking this would be a good idea. I'd just like to hear from somebody who's tried one. Have any of you guys tried one yet?

    Cams for low compression engines that raises cylinder pressure at low rpm's and sound lumpy too? How is that done? I'm no cam expert but every cam I've ever used that raised cylinder pressure did not have a lumpy idle. Generally, longer duration/overlap creates the lumpy idle but reduces cranking PSI....but have never ran their cams.

        I know. It sounds too good to be true so my first thought is, it's not. But I've read up on these and they would be perfect if they do what they claim. That's why I thought of you guys. I may take the plunge and find out.

              I know this an old thread, but did you ever take the plunge and put in the cam? Or did you use something else? I'm looking for a cam to put in my 400 that has some lump at idle.

                    I'm thinking of using a Comp Cam XE268H or XE274H. Don't want to get too big, but I still want a lumpy, choppy idle. Anyone use one of these cams?

                        Could you tell me what a stock 400 has for cam specs? I have looked, but did not find anything. Did the 400hp motor have a bigger cam or different heads or both, over the base 400?
