290 Big Bore, stock or hot cams & what stage?

Recommended Posts

Gonna go with a 290 big bore kit. I have heard that you need cams and exhaust to really get the most out of the kit. I am running a Jardine pipe now and am wondering what cams I should use? I have heard to go with stage 2 hot cams to get more top end.

Anyone have experience with this? Wondering if I should just try the big bore with stock cams first?

Stage 2 hotcam exhaust cam works well for me, Lukes 12:1 290 kit. Gave it its over rev back and still pulls up top like a 250F.

I noticed a nice difference with stage 2 cams, it moved the powerband like 2k rpm higher, which means more HP, and it wheelied less under WOT due to less bottom end power.

I liked them for how long I had 'em
