this one would have been a lot cheaper if I didn't count any value for stuff I had laying around.

Yes but you still have something in the traded parts, everything isn't free.

You need to dyno it.

true, I'll try and sit down and put a dollar figure on it, even at that it wont be much......


just have to see on the dyno if the funds are there, it may be this summer before it goes totgether, I have a small project I'm working on now and the sbf deal has to get done first.

Well I sold the top end off Cheap skate quite a few months back and now I'm going to redo it (again) and put it in my 1983 Mustang racecar.

Here's the new plan.

1) Install a new and more appropriate Cam Research Roller.... Specs 268-274 .783-.783 on a 108
2) New Lifters and a Double pinned timing set.
3) New set of 1.8 rockers.
4) Install a set of Ported Iron CJ heads with some New Lunati 74740 springs and TI retainers. The heads flowed around 370.
5) D&D 2 1/8" fox swap headers
6) New 1.80 Reid case glide and Convertor.
7) Race till it drops !

Compression is going to be down a bit to about 11.5:1 and flow is down around 20 cfm less, but with the revised camshaft, I'm expecting it to peak at about 400-500 RPM more and it should make about the same power. Opinions?

Should be together in a few months, I'm waiting on the cam to be ground and need to clear out a few things from my garage.

1/8" headers is really going to choke that motor. Laughing

Ended up selling the car to my buddy. The engine has all the pieces, just haven't put it together.

Been working on the Dragster and Stock Eliminator stuff lately.

Yes they are his house brand, they look good, I'd definitely say the are at least on par with the regular comp cams stuff and are made in the USA.

As far as service live, don't know haven't ran them yet.

They look similar to the stuff Herbert sells.
