I saw this link on a 335 series board. The problems aren't attributed to SBF, but rather FEs and one of the other makes... Just curious if anybody has had problems similar to the ones referred to in this link.
Hey Chilly and Monster,
What kind of cam specs are you guys running on your respective setups? What springs? Steel or titanium retainers? Last question: what is max rpm that your engines pull to? Thanks!
What kind of open pressure are you running with your Crane HR lifters? Is the cam Crane, too, I assume? I know this is a purely subjective question, but how do you like that came for your cubic inch displacement, and what kind of "driveability" does it have? Does it have a noticeable lope to it at idle? Just trying to figure out how hot a cam I can get away with with a bigger motor. Thanks!
That's always been my understanding too, Larry. That's actually part of the reason for my asking. I want to build something that makes good power and can run some decent times at the track on a recreational basis (not a devoted drag car), but I also am going to eventually put mass air efi on it so I don't want the cam so radical that it screws up all the electronics... SP
Thanks 67stang. Any idea how high those lifters are safe to in real life? I saw where Crane claims they're good to 7K, though I'd never try running them that high (engine won't be designed to go there). If you've got any dyno numbers with 'em I'd appreciate your letting me know.
