Yes you are pushing like you have an agenda to get the word out about how smart and ahead of the curve you've been for the past 20 years. And you obviously have no idea what I want. If you did and had the info.. I'm pretty sure you or someone else would have posted it by now. Guidelines.. trends.. rules of thumb.. why would anyone misinterpret any of those terms to be highly specific to require handholding? There are bits and pieces of pertinent info floating around through dozens of pages but most of it has been rhetoric and buried by personal bias. Not to mention no one here has said anything even remotely new or spelled out recipe's to be used on mainstream parts with mainstream cams. Like I said above.. you'd all be much further ahead in the cause if you posted full build recipe's with dyno or track results.statsystems wrote: ↑Mon Jun 11, 2018 10:17 pmNo one is pushing anything. What you want is a single answer and there isn't one. There are several 50* seat cutters. There is no one fits all.
That is exactly what I said way back in this thread. You want someone to hand hold you through the whole process. That's rediculous.
Again, remember what Darin Morgan said...he still uses 1.88 exhaust valves because that's what people wanted. I suspect the same thing happens with valve jobs.
Stay with the 45 on everything. You'll be happier.
No offense intended here.. but constantly saying "It works.. so just do it!.. but.. you have to test and retest any maybe test again to get it right. Oh, but it won't work on that mainstream AFR sbc casting and you should have a better cam too" doesn't do much for most street guys looking to clear up this subject.
And for god sakes man, just because someone doesn't feel the urge to jump headfirst into modifications for which they have little experience, and that may or may not be fully reversible, doesn't even come close to being scared of something. I'd call that prudent to protecting an investment of hard earned cash by not trying something new to them when an educated guess cannot be fully relied upon. I use the internet to gain perspectives and see trends based on others experiences.. but it's still up to me to weed through all the bs and implement any newly aquired "puzzle piece" knowledge into my own stuff. And 50's or 55's being used across the world on every conceivable combination of parts is far from a solid and well proven trend. People generally are stubborn sheep and don't change until the results are overwhelmingly in their favor. This stuff is like stock investing.. the market will bear what it can.. and this subject is far from proven to be a big money maker for all street cars so far.
Anywho.. with all the posturing and personalized crap burying.. doesn't seem to be much more to be gained in these particular threads by asking qurstions. So I'll continue to pop in and read to find the info as it gets spread out over another hundred pages or more in this thread and others like it. Thanks to those who've posted the useful bits and pieces so far.
