I would have a hard time putting a flat tappet cam in anything that nice myself....just not worth the potential issues.
There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

the comp 280 will behave just fine, used to daily a 327 with the Isky version (108 lsa) manners were fine.
I read that same post and chuckled, I also have an Isky 280 (2 degree tighter LSA than the Comp, as mentioned) in a 10.5/1 daily driver 327, with a single plane and a Q-jet no less, 18 initial and some work on the IFR and IAB, it idles pretty much like a stock L-79. Oooooh, its a BIG cam.... :roll: :lol:

PS: Almost forgot, 1.6 intake rockers as well. The horror....the horror... :lol:
