Nah. Not too worried about the numbers. I just want my semi-daily to have a little bit of a bite. Might throw some dope on it down the road... Im just not happy with cars that cant click off 11s or better!

It has already been done. I just went up to LMR and let Jay do his thing with it. I trust their thoughts and opinions. (Not saying what you presented wasnt good)

Unfortunately, it will still be waiting for the longtubes to come in after the cam is done before it really puts down any good power. And I just found out I am going back to Africa in the next 10 days to 2 weeks for work, so thats going to suck. Ill probably leave then my longtubes will get here that day. Hopefully be back in a month or two (or send money back for my roommate to just get them installed and tuned).

Whats the installed centerline? Sounds like a nice cam that will make great power 5000 rpm to 7000.

Sounds like it's going to be a healthy cam up top.

114 not my cup of tea but it might be good for a daily driver.

Waiting for the day when somebody will get a 108 installed and set the idle to 550.....

Good luck and we'll be watching!

114 isn't usually mine either, but we will see how it turns out. That LSA worries me. I really want a good sound out of it or its pointless IMO. I know that duration has a lot to do with it also, but thats about where my cam knowledge ends. Better than "put this metal stick in and make more power" but still not completely informed lol.

We will see. Its getting tuned today, so I should be picking it up sometime in the next 8 hours.

LMR promises its going to sound good. They are pretty reputable IMO. So Ill take their word for it until I hear it.

You have 15* of overlap. That's where your rumpity rump will come from. Not a huge number, but I would guess it'll still sound nice .

Your car was the link up top. I had noticed from that other thread that your specs were pretty damn close to what he was asking.

We should. I know there is a WHM meet every Thursday at Ripps, if you live anywhere close to Kirkwood and Memorial. Its not usually very big, 10 people or so. I am usually out there every week.
