    And NO WAY was that Corvette racing. I am doors with a stock one...and I make 531RWHP.
    that's sick, I had no idea the new ones had that much power.
    just curious, is your setup for just top end or do you still have a good powerband. that cam is huge!

    I think it has a pretty solid powerband, but it really kicks in at 4200 and carries to 6600.
    Still...has plenty of grunt in the lower RPM's.
    The cubes eat up the cam. It really isn't all that big in a stroker.

    And for the LS7 Z06...it is light. 3100 pounds. An average driver should be able to run an 11.5 off the showroom floor. There is a video of a bone stock one hitting 10's...on the runflats.
    We sport 400-500 more pounds than that Corvette. That is half a second.

    Sounds like you have the info.
    What exactly are you trying to figure out?? Compression ratio? The pistons and the chamber size on the heads effect the static compression ratio.


    Those 918 springs won't hold up to that Vindicator cam.

    Thinking about it a little more, go with Patriot Dual Golds.
    Did a little research, and they are holding my cam no problem. Not that the Manley's wouldn't, but something about the valve seals with the Manleys needing replaced.
