We might as well get our money’s worth. When I did a cam swap originally, I had gone with a traditional flat tappet. This time around I’ll go with a full roller cam, so ordered up a 2209 cam from Edelbrock. It will build a little more horsepower, but horsepower only comes at the expense of low rpm band torque, so I did not go crazy on the lift and duration. Still, I expect we will be well north of 300 horsepower. Should be a great combination for a Jeep.
The roller cam wants a higher open pressure on the valve springs, so time to order new springs and a valve compressor tool.
