Impressive. I can see you guys have been doing your homework. I can hardly wait for the dyno results. All you naysayers go to the back of the line.

With a stroker and tons of torque I would get rid of the VVT. He will have all he can do to get the power to the road as it is. If it was a 376" motor I would say keep the VVT. I don't see 550rwhp...

Interesting that you brought this back up today. I just received two 90 degree bends today so I can make my own Helmholtz resonators. With my car I will be shooting for the 1800-2200 rpm range.

I don't know about the cams gears. However I will go with the LS2 style dampner. It does not cost that much and adds a little to the safety margin.
