    Mine is
    308 +.040"
    Flat top pistons (.016" down the bore)
    Home ported VN's with stock valves
    SFT 244/248 @ .050 .569/.579 lift 106LC
    Defillipo 4 int0 1's
    Edelbrock Air Gap D/P intake
    750 Holley DP
    MSD ready to run

    T400 with 3000 stall

    It's a bit of a bastard combo that could easily be improved on, 350fwhp would be a walk in the park.
    Good stuff. Yeh don't want anything too wild. Must be getting old! Will probably sell the car when it's done as I'm outa garage space.

    Here is a screen shot of a cam suggestion from a previous thread some time ago from a guy that knows a thing or two on Holden V8’s [IMG]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210506/ec4b1dab7b6ea6a2595a7fee5319e975.jpg[/IMG]

    I like the duration but would tighten up that LSA to 106°, advanced to 102-104°ICL.

    Just my 2c.

    Yeh being a manual car I've found the "chop" or "pig rooting" of the tighter LSA's to be not too nice. My solid roller in another build is 110 because of this, on TK's recommendation.

    Even with an auto mine jumps around a bit idling in gear but the sound is pretty hard to beat.

    That’s a pretty stout combo. May be down a bit on quench. What comp did it end up with?

    I had 0.030" skimmed off the heads and ended up around 10.2:1. In hindsight I should've had the block skimmed but at the time I was running out of time & low on cash.

    Know the feeling. I wish I’d done that bloody oil mod. And balancing. But at least we are both doing skids ahead of time. Lol
