Yes ! The proper cam it sure needs ! :D
I'll google "proper cam company"

More cam (duration and lift) would put power on it I'm sure.
I don't think * would disagree with me on that.


*, Steve has a Comp Cams solid roller rt-nc lobe cam 248-258 LSA 109 I think.
That'd put it over 600 HP

You wanting my vacuum pump ?
EMC Try Ys ?

I have fresh Q16 here in the shop? :D

Many many years ago I took an edelbrock mechanical fuel pump I had from a dirt BBC engine and used it on my 531 just because I had nothing else to use and it actually pulled 6" vacuum in crankcase. I and the dyno guy were a little surprised.

Its funny how the cam that is already in the engine is ALWAYS wrong, never correct or proper and you always get told after its already in there...

The weather has definitely taken a turn for the better. I just need to "beg" Joe to let me dyno SN again, he just wants to see it in the car :lol: . I hear that pretty often. So hopefully soon SN gets taken off of dyno duty, and my dedicated dyno mule "overflowz" will be in full effect! :lol:
