I am building a 1300 Limited Prep Spitfire. Wondering if anyone would like to share knowledge of a good cam for this build. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Your best bet is to contact those that race them and see if they have any for sale .
In my case, (VW,) I have the 4th generation of custom cam running now . The testing and custom cuts have cost a few dollars. Sharing my cam data with no return on my investment, is a poor business model. I would be happy to sell one tho.
I'm sure that the LBC guys are in a similar situation .

I was actually looking for feed back on Cams offered by APT, TSI, Elgin. I was interested in experience with current compression regs. I certainly was not expecting anyone to share custom profiles developed at great time and expense. Anyone have any experience with these grinds?

We are running the APT SPVP8-BK scatter pattern cams in our 1275 LPs. I don't get too excited about cams too often but this grind lit up our 11.1 engines like I've never seen before. We have a 3.7 rear gear behind a transmission with a 1.8 first gear that lights up our rear tires coming out of the hairpin at Sebring. On a 8 x 11 printout our torque curve is over an inch higher than the horsepower curve. 3,500 to 7,000 rpm is all torque and a lot of fun.
