New cam for my 408.
The motor is in and seems to be running well. Only got to drive it a few miles last night after I got the motor in. It's very snappy and has a ton of power. The motor is a lot quieter with new cam and smoother. Still have some tuning to do. Need to drop in some smaller jets and adjust timing a touch. I will let my engine builder take care of that. Here's a  pic and video of first fire up. Has slight hesitation in video but it seemed to go away after it ran for a few more minutes and I got fresh gas in it. The gas was OLD from October last year. Put some fresh 93 in it and ran great.
