I picked up 3 mph in the 1/2 mile with 20 degrees less cam duration, and .100 less lift.  
Backed up the results at the Colorado Mile later in the year too.

What was the DA on those days? Had to be higher then 6,000'!

I don't recall off the top of my head what it was exactly, but 9000++ is pretty common.

Gary,
Not that it is any persons business but Philip Oakley Automotive DBA Oakley Motorsports only has one owner. Also I had nothing to prove by doing this project except to learn something. Don Bowles, Lem Evans and myself are great friends and they have helped me in so many ways with Knowledge, advice, and business. I can tell you I have no problem with these guys in my corner but at the end of the day this business is mine.

I have Mike Phillips Dts dyno. I purchased this dyno because I had years of info on it and did not want to lose it. Mr Bowles has a new Super flow at his shop. Yes I have access to both. Thanks for your concern.

I believe that it is your business and in your name. Good thinking on getting the DTS from Mike. Thanks

The numbers here in the summer during the day can be pretty bad, none of that below sea level stuff for us.

Yeah, I need to build a 700+ cubic inch engine to make up for that thin air.
