Hello, I am new to the world of engine building and was wondering what camshaft would be the best for my engine. It is a 4l 1999 rv8 that will have a dual plane manifold, a carb, and standard internals. It is going into a 1979 mgb

Depends on what you want. Really the stock cam is a reasonable place to start.

That's a good place to stop. After all, is there anything it won't do? Even works as a marital aid! (so they say)

How hard do you intend to push this engine, Drew?

Auto or manual?

If torque is your thing, Real Steel sell one called the 'stump puller'.
