With a 2:1 box I like this cam.

Set it about 5300 on trailer. Them "K" blades need a little tip speed.

A truly ridiculous statement in a thread about what cam may work well in an airboat. I am sure GM has spent many an hour trying to make
an engine perform well in that kind of application with highly modified intake and exhaust systems. :roll: :scratch:

That's really funny because I run that cam. Why does people think an airboat with any kinda reduction needs a special cam? I am old school and all these ideas that people think wont work will work. Ill bet now I hear a Buick motor wont work for DD.

Determine the speed you want to spin the prop. Use ur gear ratio to get required engine rpm for that prop speed. Get all the specs to ur engine and call John @ bullet racing cams. They will give you a very good cam to meet ur engine needs.
