Following camshaft is for sale. Its brand new still in the box. Story goes - Australian Post told me that they lost this cam, so i re ordered another one under insurance. Than Australian Post tell me that they located the first cam and now i have two. First cam has been installed in my new engine via Ford stroker in USA, second cam is returning home on my engine pallet being shipped next week. So grab your self a bargin, this is a custom grind cam specifications for a 347 short engine with Trickflow 170 heads ( although I upgraded to TFS 190 heads after I had ordered, so both are fine) I ve also got TFS R series manifold with a 75mm TB.

The below camshaft is for sale – still new in the box, 20% off retail.
The information below is from the spec sheet that came with the camshaft in the box

It is highly recommended to check and verify piston to valve clearance
Failure to do so may result in serious cylinder head and engine damage

Re attached images.

First image is of my new engine - which has the first cam in it... so as you can see, this is a high quality build which should give you an idea about the quality of the camshaft for sale. Ed Curtis at FTI is world renown for his cams... heaps of companies try copy his grinds but they can not get it right. + I had to wait in line for 2 months to get this cam... that how in demand he is;-)

Second image is of the camshaft with the spring upgrade set. Only camshaft is included in this sale
