question for you engine builders

degreeing a cam, is it necessary?

Im running a mild built 350 in my dirt track car.
.40 over with Keith Black flat tops
3 angle valve job
stock intake and carb (damn rules)
not sure of the cam specs but its pretty mild (I will get the cam specs in the morning)

question is; is it as simple as moving to the 2* or 4* on my timing set?

I know they sell degree wheels with dial indicators and TDC stops and other accesories but is all that needed?


thanks for any input

really depends on how you drive and what kind of peak performance your wanting. i have never really degreed any of my cams in sbc and they have ran strong so far, then again i just build mine for torque and low rpm, circle track are the exact opposite if im thinking correctley lol

I think with the gears I have and the short track we have here I should turn 6000+
Not exactly crawling numbers

I'm gonna run it Saturday and see what it has. Damn I hope my engine builder is good
