Nice Dave!!! I wonder what it would have pulled with my cam in it. This coming winter, I'll have to pull it out and send it to you so you can make a few runs with it and see..... Twisted Evil

I was thinking about having something else ground, then when I started thinking about what lobes I wanted then it started to snowball...... Need New Springs, New Retainers, Etc...... Kinda started straying from the "Cheap Skate" Theme.... Laughing Laughing

Thanks !!!

Total Spent is about $4000 on the Engine, With out Headers + The Dyno Time.

I'd think a typical back yard gear head could make 600+ for well under $5000 (Real thrifty ones could probably do it for under $4000) or about $800 +/- per 100hp !! Laughing

For someone contemplating a build like this........ The Heads / Induction are the biggest return for investment and where you don't want to cut corners, next is the Valvetrain, Flat tappet stuff will get-r-done too, but roller stuff is better if you have the budget.

Pick the "Right Stuff" !!!

Other good Lessons buy only from Trusted Sources and know what your looking at, being educated is paramount when wanting to get a good bang for the $$$ spent.
