What a shame it is when we have a chance to learn something and likely something good but the haters are out in full on mob mentality to bash a man who has likely done more than all of them put together.
Gary C I echo your comment about someone that is supposed to be the smartest one here....99% of what
I have seen that poster share is 1 or 2 line smart, pointed comments that have Zero knowledge enhancing
Their is 1 other hi profile poster here that I have no doubt is correct in his thought process that the 128 cam rule is insanely basic and can be improved on but I ask what does he have to offer that will help me and many others to do a better job building my next engine?
What good is it guys if you have all of this knowledge and experience but you cannot drop it down say
50 IQ points for a guy like me to benefit from it? In the end you will take it with you because of failure
to pass it on in a meaningful way.....not much good to take it to your grave unless you really do not want to
share and help fellow enthusiasts out...which I suspect is the case with 1, the other struggles with getting things to a more simplified nature.
What David Vizard has been able to do is put the leg work in, build the engines, gather the data and make sense of it in a way that those of us with less than 130 IQ can understand it and learn from it. He has been able to share a lot of information with a lot of gearheads.
People are so fast to bash the 128 deal but when used as intended it works.....by now we should all know that all of the cam events can be manipulated to change an engines character.....LSA is only going to vary so much....104-120 will cover 99%, break it down further to SBC 104-114, start breaking it down further with bores/strokes/head flow/valve size and real quick you can see that the LSA will fall into a small window.
When picking cam events sure you can add 6 degrees and widen the LSA 1 to reduce OL or whatever so that you can say you picked the events and let the lsa fall where it may but on a few different types of engine
David has done the work and collected and analyzed the data to a point where using the 128 rule you can likely get 95% of all their is to get given your limited budget......
I think it is brilliant what Vizard has come up with for those few limited engine families and If I ever get the chance I will put my hand in his and shake it while I tell him job well done......
I have many of his publications and have learned a great deal from them,and will continue to look forward to his future publications........ if the nay sayers here have info or links to info that I could learn from then I would ask you share that with me so I can further educate myself.
The last time I spoke up against a member here I received a time out, I hope that is not the case again.
Now please can we get back to the subject that the OP posted about which is a BAMF 427 inch power house?
Thanks again DV.....The majority of us are interested in what you have to share.
