Madnss is correct, if you read through my build thread, my stated goal at the beginning was not a max HP build. It was built primarily with streetability and dependability in mind. For me the combo I've put together works well.

Rite on rico.....To the original poster.....Your trying to pick a cam out of a million choices for a stock bike, then a ported bike.

Tough to do, unless your trying to reinvent the wheel, go with what works and is proven. The cams you mentioned are great cams. I just think the majority of the population in the sportster world has had good luck with stock bikes and ported bikes using cams such as the 497, n4, 536, n6 to a name a few that came to mine.

If you want to go bigger. the cams you named are great, but the world proof of them is not there as much. Bigger cams that have proven themselves. 585, 567, redshifts, chicken 536, 575, To name a few.

Ive always stuck with what works and is proven. im not a wheel inventor, thats up to you to decide, But the above cams, work with the proper head work. good luck buddy and welcome to the forum

My engine is also on hammers website and this forum.

Thats a little bit more spicy of a build then n4's if thats your cup of tea.

bad48, a good head porter can look at your flow data and do some calculations that point him to the best grind for your particular heads and horsepower target. If you're going to have Zipper's port your heads, I highly suggest that you talk to Zipper's and get their recommendation, as the rest of us can only guess (unless you want to publish your flow data, in which case I'll run the numbers).
