Tell Us Why You Need A Lunati Bootlegger Cam And You Could Win One!

bootleggerthumb“The best of both worlds” is an expression that we’ve heard a million times. Sometimes we’re not sure what it means, other times we know exactly what we’re getting. The latter describes the new Bootlegger cam from Lunati, and it combines classic musclecar attitude with today’s modern technology to give you old school performance with an edge.

Bootlegger Cam Applications

  • Chevrolet Small Block 283-400 1955-Present
  • Chevrolet Small Block 5.7L/LT1 1987-Present
  • Chevrolet Big Block V8 396-454 1965-1996
  • Ford V8 351W 1969-1996 & 302 H.O. 1962-1996 (Windsor Firing Order 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8)
The Bootlegger Camshaft draws on the days when hot rodders in the 1950s were running “3/4 race cams” for ultimate performance. These cams sat between a 1/2 race cam and a full race cam by combining the full race cam’s intake lobe and the 1/2 race cam’s exhaust lobe, giving them performance half way between the two cams. In other words: it’s a race-hot street cam.

Lunati took on a different spin with their new Bootlegger cams by providing a new, radical cam that provides better street manners, but still gives the performance of a 3/4 race cam.

“On the design, the Bootlegger is more like a race cam on the exhaust opening with just a little less overlap to allow some street manners,” explains Lunati engineer David Chamberlain. “The intake closing is more tucked in for the street RPM.”

Performance and street manners makes for a winning combination, and now you can enter our Lunati Bootlegger Contest to win a Bootlegger Camshaft and Lifters for your next build. All of the prizes are listed below.

Win A Bootlegger Cam And Be An Outlaw

We’ve brought you the Bootlegger Trilogy from Lunati, with the final video telling the full story: The difference between an outlaw and a criminal often comes down to who gets caught.

1st5And now that the story has been told, it’s time for some of you outlaws to get in on the story and tell us why you need a Bootlegger camshaft from Lunati for your Ford or Chevy. If your story appeals to our judges the most, you could win the grand prize – which includes a new Bootlegger camshaft and lifter set of your choice.

Applications fit many Chevrolet and Ford small- and big-block applications, and all of the specs are on the Bootlegger camshaft spec page, with charts, videos, rpm range, lift and duration.

But there’s a catch to this, and you knew this was coming, right? You can’t just enter the contest, which runs from April 20th, 2015, through the end of May, 2015; you have to be creative – and the more creative you are the better your chances for winning the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 10 consolation prizes.
