    Haven't heard much about those grinds yet....so looking forward to hearing about it as well.

    I do like the specs though. Can't wait to see a dyno graph.

    Wow sounds mean! When I went with a buddy to get his car tuned the shop owner was singing his praises about the LSR lobed cams. The only thing is, wont the high lift and quick ramp rate affect overall spring life? Like instead of having to change them every 15k you'll have to change them every 8-10 or something? Sound mean as hell man, cant wait to see #'s

    Torque at what rpm? Big torque does not mean low rpm or hp.

    stock rod bolts don't want to spin it much past 6200 rpm. looking for a 3000 or less stall, have 3.23 gears

    Reverse split cams 224/220, 227/224 and the el torro cam. Basically make the same power if the duration in/ex were switched but the torque comes in earlier.
