    ok the other day i put a post up about the the crane cam 100172. Well i tried to order it and everywhere i checked its either discontinued or on back order. my question is does anyone know of a cam that is similar to the 100172? I was lookin at the Lunati 00016LK, has anyone tried it or know of a cam similar to the 100172? and im runnin a 350 with 194 heads (vortecs eventually) and possibly a stock torque converter or a 2400 stall. I just want a mild built 350 with a good sound like what the 100172 would give me.

    Heres the specs for the crane 100172 .450 lift, 272/272 Adv duration, and 218/218 duration at .50 lift.
    and heres the link for the lunati.

    That lunati cam will not sound like the 100172 and will be milder because of the 110 LSA vs. the 106 of the Crane but will still be a good cam for you. Go to fastengineparts.com or performanceparts.com and see if they have any. The "cam only" part number is 10017 so you might do a google search for that too. Those cams are around, you just have to do some searching on amazon, ebay, google, etc. The 172 cam is a great cam for a mild 350 that has a small duration with a big cam sound. Should make around 14" of vacuum at 1000 rpm and 11" at 850 rpm. Made this in a friends 260 hp crate motor which is only around 8-1 cr. You may need a 2400 stall with this cam. Although Crane has shut there doors, they are several companies looking to buy them.

    Amazes me that they can get that much lift with 218 deg duration. Be a good cam for a medium performer/driver.

    The advertised duration is 2 weeks long, that's how.

    The 218* duration is at .050" lift (not .50", as I'm sure that was a typo on the OP's part).

    Crane 100172 is the same-ish enough as the comp 268 HE.
    Comp just charges more for a less durable part.

    Also check SpeedPro, Sealed Power, Wolverine etc.
