How about a few details on the internals?
Also, what did you choose for a clutch and what are you investigating for he rear?

C'mon Andy. I know after talking to you (literally) that somewhere in that shop are enough tools (dial indicator, degree wheel) to get the specs on the cam.

.......and again we must wait and oh how we must wait......There seems to be an ongoing theme lately but it certainly leaves a lot to be looking forward to.

Cam - Haha

Cam is big,big enough to make 670 fwhp.

I have one also that made 620 fwp.Should drive alot better.

We will see how the car reacts to the big one first.

Andy

Cams have become something secretive over the years of the internet due to other vendors copying specs and selling similar products. I don't blame you for not making it public, but it hasn't been tested yet in a camaro in street trim, or race trim either.

I completely understand builders keeping secrets. That's all cool and OK with me. Thinking of it, when they find the "special ingrediant" it make them that much more marketable and reputable. I actually watch my machinist grind off the grind number on a billet roller and I knew back then why he did it and never asked.

I appreciate GREATLY the amount of R&D that ADM is investing to provide valid tuning information for their services.

I have a personal bag of money I am setting aside titled "Andy's Bag of Tricks".

I do have a related topic question and hope Andy or someone here can look into it.
Where is the dry sump resevior mounted and how is it mounted on the Corvette? Will there be enough room to put it and the external oil pump into the Camaro.

My thinking here is to merge both worlds for cost advantage and performance gain.
If you can buy the forged steel crank that allows an external pump and pulley and the separate oil pan (ie Canton) and the resevior there's potiential for a great reliable horspower combination....as long as there's room for all the external pieces.
