Isky or Potvin

Did the late Jazzy Nelson use a Isky or Potvin cam in his FH powered car. I do know it was pretty fast for it time. The Bean bandits used to respect it.

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

They used to say that running straight alcohol let the engine run cooler. I don't know how much that would help in drag racing but I am sure it was a factor in stock car racing.
