Re: 4 Questions - Isky Tool Room Springs VS Chrome Silicon & Titanium Retainers On Street Engine

COMP cams make a good conical, just not the best choice for beehives............yes pac also a good option. Also look into tool steel for retainer's ...

Re: Choosing a cam for a 363 SBF

I took a valve out and measured the bottom of the retainer to the top of the seal. The distance is .850. I also weighed the intake valve and it came in at 131 grams. It’s a 2.08” stainless valve. Thanks, Rob With that heavy of an intake valve, a camshaft which is not so aggressive at high lifts nea...

Re: LAT Billet oil filter?

My 'no term use' feedback is that there's no need to pay $400 to get a really good filter, much less $120 for the replacement element. It's about $220 us dollars +$42 us for a spare element. It's $28us (about $40 Aus) for a MOROSO filter down here in Australia, i change them every six months, plus ...

Re: Valve lift vs. port flow and cam selection

Not as many as you think. When IndyCar went to NA engines, my cams were in over 80% of the field from 1997-2002, and powered 3 Indy 500 champions. Over those 6 years, I think we only made 6 or 7 different cam designs, and 2 or 3 of them, were because of rule changes to the RPM limit, and engine siz...

Re: Valve lift vs. port flow and cam selection

Just curious, who can say it's not? Considering all of the data we use today has been derived from decades of development using 28" as a standard... Not an absolute, why do so many today want to try to pretend it has no value in everything they do? I for one can say 28 inches is not the do all, be ...
