Camshaft question...

Does anyone know where I can get the camshaft profile for a 1983 full-size Cherokee 258-I6? And how the camshaft profile would compare to older 258's? Thanks, Ed.

Re: Camshaft question...

Are you looking for specific cam profiles, like in lift, duration, ramp angles, opening velocities...
Stuff like that, or just wanting to know what a good replacement cam would be?

Edelbrocks 'Torque' cams do a good job with out requiring non stock push rods, rockers, ect...
Still good low end, but greatly increased power band from just off idle through mid range.
Upper RPM limits will be determined by decent intake and headers...
If you aren't looking for lots of RPM, I'd say the 'Torque' cam is maybe what you are looking for...

Specific details for that cam are on Edelbrocks web site.
