Finding the perfect cam for a new engine is not an easy task, but the staff at Howards Cams is there to help you find the perfect cam for your application. There are countless ways improve the performance of an engine, but nitrous oxide provides a lot of bang for the buck. Howards offers cams that are designed to meet the needs of nitrous engines and maximize the performance of your combination. Their Big Bottle Cams are available for bowtie and blue oval fans alike, but today we highlight the cams available for 221, 302, and 351 Windsor engines from 1963 to 2002. This mechanical roller model (221133-12) is designed for those running 11.5:1 or higher compression with a nitrous plate system. Based on the information provided, this particular model should require at least a 3,500 stall converter, but there are options for those of you with something higher. Even when the nitrous is not engaged this camshaft will provide plenty of throttle response and power, making it possible to use this cam with street and strip applications.

Specifications:

  • Lift .640 / .640
  • Duration @ .050: 255 /267
  • Centerline 108
  • Nitrous Oxide Camshaft

There are wilder cams out there, but it is important to look at the whole picture when you start to order parts; there is a need for balance when selecting a cam for your engine. For those looking for specific information or have additional questions, Howards Cams offers a camshaft recommendation form to ensure that you get the best part to meet your needs. For those looking to further refine their camshaft, Howards Cams offers units for both small plate systems and the multi-stage systems as well. You can find out more about this option, and the rest of their lineup at Howardscams.com.
