Crane Cams Releases Original “Blueprint” Spec Muscle Car Cams

We all know that before computers came along the camshaft was the real “brain” of the engine. Since it controls absolutely everything involved in keeping an engine running, such as valve timing, valve list, distributor relationship, etc. it makes sense that if one is building an engine for their muscle car to original specs that the camshaft itself must have been created to the original grind requirements.

Unfortunately though, should you wish to build a spec motor for the 302 in a ’69 Camaro Z/28, or maybe a 426 HEMI, plan to spend a few days on Google trying to determine what the original cam specs were. You’ll then follow that up with a few more days of trying to figure out if anyone makes something identical, or similar enough for your use, or whether you’ll need to have a custom grind done. Until now.

Crane Cams has released their “Blueprint” series cams for muscle cars and it’s completely designed around identifying the cam that you need the easy way; by the engine! Their hydraulic or mechanical flat tappet camshafts are authentic duplicates of the original equipment and their profiles have been computer smoothed for added performance and increased valve train life. For an original spec muscle car restoration it’s tough to find an easier and more accurate solution to match the details of the year,  factory part number and idle characteristics for your engine restoration.
