Choosing the proper camshaft for your Cadillac engine is extremely critical, as no other component creates as many variables as its cam. Horsepower, torque, economy, and driveability are all governed by your camshaft choice.
Installation of your cam is just as important as it takes the correct parts and information to get it right. Whether you are a novice or an accomplished engine builder, MTS is here to provide the "Cadillac Level of Service" you need and want. Our dedication and expertise with Cadillac engines comes to you as part of being a customer.
From our five tried and true MTS cams to our custom designs, MTS is the best place to come for your Cadillac Performance needs.
MTS #5 Series Grinds:
RPM range: 1000-4500/ Advertised duration range: 258-266* / Duration @ .050" range: 208-215* / Valve lift range: .495-.510".
#5 grinds from MTS are an excellent choice to replace 1974 and newer smog-controlled stock cams. #5 grinds are an updated version of the "Hottest" cam grind used by Cadillac in their production engines.
The 1973 Caddy engines were equipped with a stock cam that had specs in this range. These cams run more lift and duration than the 1968-72 and 1974-79 original cams.
Stock type idle with excellent economy and a good gain over the stock cam.
Works excellent with the stock TH400 transmission shifts points. Just leave it in drive, smash the gas, and let the tranny shift by itself.
Peak cruise RPM for efficiency is 2200-2500.
