I just installed an Isky 777 in my TR4. The 666 specs are:
cam lift 0.298
valve lift 0.435
0.050 duration 250
lash 0.018 (h)
I can send you the timing info if you need it.
I have no experience with the 666 grind, but the 777 grind "comes on the
cam" at 3500 like a ton of bricks and screams to at least 6000. It doesn't
idle below 1100 and has mediocre low end torque. The 777 is a streetable
cam, so I expect the 666 to be even better for street use.
