"How big of a cam..."

That my friend is the question. Hence why I have not ordered it yet. I dunno. As big as will go 10.99 and drive great for a daily-driven car.

Thanks JBrown.

My 2nd pass was the best one, the track was not prepped earlier. After that the track was not great, but us radial guys were not putting any rubber down.

Order of runs:
12.04@113 1.74
11.84@113 1.59
11.90@114 1.62 (hot lapped, brought my converter up more, didn't like it)
11.97@113 1.71
12.05@113 1.74
12.04@113 1.74

12.05@113 1.74

Having been is Sasquash's VVT4 cammed car a few times, it's more than daily driver friendly enough for me.
It's too bad you're not down here, there are (at least) two VVT4 guys and one VVT3 running around.

But you might not have enough converter for the VVT4?

I could change the converter. It's in the back of my mind for next year. I'll have to see how good / bad the shift extension is.

Glade you got your PB John. I should have hit the tires hard after they sprayed the track, so I blew my chance! I think you are gonna have a 10 sec car next year if we can get it to hook man!

That's our goal right, you and me 10's on motor. I was thinking about your car yesterday night, how to work on the gearing.

If the air looks good this Thursday I might go again, but that might be it for me. I don't have any more weight I can take out without taking out the bumper supports and I dunno if a race gas tune would add with my stock compression.

Yep thats the goal bud! I think I might step up to 3.73s, my car needs gear but I don't want to not be able to drive to the track. 3.73, intake mod, underdrive pulley.

Then I will step up cam and ported heads. So it may be 2 years before I get into the 10s with you. But next year I think will be your year!

Bah, do the engine now and the gear later. I bet ported heads, ported intake, udp you'll be 11.2 or quicker. Plus moving to a better drag radial.

I'd like to go 10.99 next year, but based on my own experience and watching other folk's combos on here, it will take time.

I think more gear is nice but I think it would also be interesting for you to keep in mind a 4L80E swap. A transmission guy I was hanging out with said all the earlier stuff bolts up too. That would be the core price way down and then they just need a basic rebuild.
