Wade 1636. It is tried and trusted, the best all round cam you can get (now there is no more RPD). Gives my 8 a run and doesnt suck the juice as much too.

i know kenwood maverick had this cam (1636c977b) and he wasnt happy with it, he has since put a cms stage 2 cam in for much better results...
crescent motors are a site sponsor, speak to joe for some advice...

I'd check out the Stg 2 cam as well ... have seen great results from the Stg 3 too (but more work is needed for it to run well).
