I've debated on it. i have newer block so roller was factory thought about making full roller engine. free few horse up. also idk i have 400 ideas in my head. I've debated on selling mine also lowering compression and supercharging. my original plan was twin turbo and had it 90% complete and it screwed a piston over. then tear down see my heads been shaved and pistons were flat tops. and not running next year and building 565ci big block. too many ideas to blow money too fast lol.

didn't read but hood clearance. i think with short air-filter i could damn near have a 6-71 blower under the hood. with 2-4" cowl i know i could. idk see how this winter goes. debated on putting a vortech supercharger on and going to this cam.

Comp Cams lobe numbers: 4873S/4873S
Duration at 0.050 tappet lift: 236/236
Lobe lift: 0.377/0.377 inch
Observed lift: 0.600/0.600 with 1.65:1 rockers and 0.022-inch lash
Lobe separation angle: 115 degrees
Valvespring diameter: 1.550 inches
Valvespring installed height: 1.860 inches
Spring pressures: 175 lbs on the seat, 420 lbs open

guess find out around tax time what happens. the cheap $2000 kit the supercharger is good for up to 17 psi factory set @ 5psi. so there's lots of potential in a cheaper supercharger and it will bolt right up to my serpentine setup.

That would be mine. Bought the hat off eBay thinking it would be decent paid 95 for it and intake pipes are 2" OD

You do know this isn't a plug problem right?? This is usually closely followed by a piston problem or a head gasket problem...... I have been unfortunate enough to collect a few like that over the years. I think Champion plugs have softer ground straps than other plugs but this will actually save you by showing signs sooner.

engine has maybe 1000 miles and head gaskets maybe 100 miles since that. i replaced to my normal plugs i run and runs like a million bucks. engine was built july 2011 idk not the biggest far of chrome rings :S seem not to seal until its warm. cold and sitting for a week i get 165-175lbs after its ran some time in last day its normally right @ 200 lbs. idk i've only replaced 1 piston in my build it was a pre built engine before from Horn Racing Products Cedar Rapids Iowa. so i had 7 used 1 new and its cylinder 8 and 2 that burned the plugs. cylinder 1 is new. but they all look new.




and they were still in good shape no detonation marks or Anything
