Ford Windsor V8 289 302 351 Street Cam Stage 1 – Hot Rod Cams series by Kustom Bitz

Overall Rating :
Performance Camshaft – requires new lifters and performance valve springs

Product Description

Part# KB15890-8 ~ Stage 1 Ford 289 302 351 V8 Windsor hydraulic performance street camshaft custom ground for a tough sounding idle and low down torque. Maximum performance and drivability in street modified engines.

Stage 1 cam’s torque band is strongest from 1500rpm to 4500rpm and can be used with stock stall converters for automatic transmissions. The power range of the cam is from 1600 to 4800 rpm.

A stage 1 cam will work ok with standard exhaust manifolds and a low restriction exhaust however our Hot Rod Cams series work best on a well prepared engine with high compression 9.5:1 or better, headers and a free flowing exhaust system, 465 cfm vac sec Holley carb or 600cfm and a 4 barrel manifold.

Camshaft Specifications;
Advance Ground on Cam; 2 deg, Lobe Separation; 108 deg, duration @ .050 inch = INT 212 EX 217 deg, Total duration = INT 272 EX 283 deg, valve timing INT 30/62 EX 72/32, Valve Lift INT .466 EX .474 inch, Power range 1600-4600 rpm. Install straight up on timing marks.

This performance camshaft requires good quality cam followers and new performance valve springs. To get the best out of your new combination you do not want bad cam timing so we recommend new timing chain or new timing gears.

IMPORTANT: These high performance components should be checked for suitability by the person installing them as engines of the same group can vary in valve length, spring installed height, and Collet groves.

It is the sole responsibility of the installer to check suitability.

To ensure your camshaft is the correct model for your application place the new cam next to the your old cam and check the following points.
Do the lobes all point the same way?
Are the holes or groves in the bearing journals the same?
Is the distributor gear the same size and angle and position on the camshaft?
Is the fuel pump lobe in the same place on the camshaft?



This camshaft must be installed with new cam followers and good quality performance valve springs. All engines will vary due to machining so check engine for correct rocker arm geometry and push rod length. This camshaft has a higher lift than standard so check valve springs for coil bind and retainer to top of the valve guide clearance at full valve lift when installed. You also need to check valve to piston clearance and the camshaft timing marks on the timing chain are lined up. All these checks need to be done before you start the engine. Correct cam lube needs to be applied during engine assembly and lifters [cam followers] need to be primed with oil. The lifters should rotate freely in their bores. This camshaft needs to be run in at 2500rpm for at least 20minutes to ensure plenty of oil pressure is present to drown the cam and lifters in lubricant during the run in period. Refer to our web site for more information, specifications, cam set up and tuning tips.

Disclaimer: All performance modifications will most likely alter exhaust emissions. This means that for later model cars that need to comply with exhaust emissions standards you install these performance parts at your own risk.
