    Good timing starting point for my aluminum headed 496?

    Thanks guys and she is a "straub" cam. Hopefully he lives up to his reputation. Before I paid the money for that expensive phone call, I really researched him and couldn't find one person that said a negative thing. That's pretty incredible seeing how easy it is to hide behind the anonymity of...

    Good timing starting point for my aluminum headed 496?

    It's a 248/262 Hydro roller with .665/.612 lift on a 107 LSA. Is that wild? Not sure what serious builders consider wild.

    Good timing starting point for my aluminum headed 496?

    I'm hoping to get away with the NON-ethanol 92 sold locally but the same station sells 110 right out of the ground. I can always mix if I have to.

    Good timing starting point for my aluminum headed 496?

    Man I'm getting close to firing my new motor. Want to try and get close on my initial timing curve since getting at the dizzy is not easy. My last 2 454's had low compression and I was able to get away with quite a bit of initial timing (18* or so). I don't think I will get away with that much...

    BBC Balancer recommendation?

    I think that's a tad over the top for me. It looks like a balancer off the space shuttle. What's with all the bolts? Even the ATI doesn't have that many.

    big block tri power

    Everything "looks" awesome about the setup!! Never really understood the reason behind the triangle though.

    BBC Balancer recommendation?

    Problem is I was one of those guys that probably didn't ask ENOUGH questions which is why I lost my last flat tappet cam to the lobe monster. This is why I will only run a roller in anything remotely performance.

    BBC Balancer recommendation?

    A guy over at Team Camaro recommended a Prorace balancer which is actually the Summit brand...meaning they build for Summit. I don't want something coming apart at 6,000 which is why I have this out there. Just wanting a good product for a good price. It's kind of like my heads. Could have...

    BBC Balancer recommendation?

    I am just about to pull the trigger on an ATI 7" super damper for my internally balanced 496. I'm just really having a hard time swallowing the $325 price tag. I just want to be careful that I am not doing an overkill on my application. Sure Jesel belt drives are the bomb but usually not needed...

    big block tri power

    Just make sure and do it for looks or the coolness factor because a tri-power setup will never hang with a properly tuned 4 barrel and intake.

    Street legal, what does it mean

    I've see that a few times. Pretty unrear how he's working on a Lenco in the gravel! Those guys are right at the 7.00 mark and just a tad lower. How many times you think they have to fill up??

    Street legal, what does it mean

    You should say yes as long as you keep the 3/4 race cam in it. Anything bigger than that and she's an outlaw.

    Help me get the fuel correctly from the cell to the 496!

    We I have a much better understanding about this issue since I posted this 2 days ago. Actually Holley was right on with what they recommended. We all like to usually run a minimum of a 3/8th fuel line which is .378. The Holley bypass filter has a restriction of .220. What he way trying to...

    Help me get the fuel correctly from the cell to the 496!

    Well I tried this over on Team Camaro with no replys. Hopefully someone over here can help me. I want to correctly get the fuel from my cell in the back to my twin 650 Holley double pumper'd 496. My cam guy (Chris Straub) is saying that this combo will be knocking on the door of 650hp @ 6,300...

    BBC stroker clearance on oil pans.

    Just called Milodon and that seems to be the case. If the rods will clear the block panrail, then they will clear the pan!
