Cam Suggestions

I've got a 3.5L V8 from my D110, that I'm rebuilding...

Engine is out, stripped down, and at the machine shop.

I'm going to start ordering my parts for the rebuild and I'd like to know if any of you, that own this same motor, have installed an aftermarket cam in yours. If so, what did you use and how were the results?

I've got to replace my Cam and Lifters/Tappets anyway, so I'd like to see if I can get a little more ouf of the engine while I'm at it. Any recommendations?

Cheers,
Punter

A stock 3.9 cam will really help a 3.5 motor - signifigant difference. You'll want to look at RPI's website www.v8engines.com

I put a Crane cam for a Buick/Olds V-8 in my 3.5 L 1985 Range Rover years ago - wound up having to put some shims under the rocker shaft stands because the base circle for the GM cam was larger in diameter than the Rover cam and it preloaded the hydraulic lifters too much. Just something else you need to check when you're changing cams.
