I’ve never heard of Reher Morrison building junk. They heads are CNC ported by them and the cam is spec’d By them also. I may have misquoted the figures slightly but the cam part number is a 410-110. The gearing will be too deep for spray I know that but perfect for N/A when you consider my 1.76 first gear. My results after switching from 4.88s to 5.67s also proved it. That advice was from Big Joe himself. With our bad air I would be more than happy with a 5.7. I don’t expect that even with a tunnel ram.
At your race weight 600 gets you 5.7 @ 660
Your setup is extremely inefficient
Facts are painfull for most
Enjoy
Explain in detail where he should go. Just remember he has no air where he's at.
He should find some -ain’t too hard
Details are not efficient going by the clock
Plenty of others that will tell him to buy this and that
Enjoy

Arthur: if his car was Racing at sea level it would make the 600 hp (Dyno SAE corrected )

He is not at sea level. Your N /A engine makes a lot less power at his elevation than at sea level.
when you correct for elevation it is being all it can be and should be.
Actual racing conditions matter.

VegaJohn: Neat car...keep doing what you're doing. I'd recommend working with a convertor company that's a known quantity. Dynamic Convertor is one company that I've had great luck with. http://www.dynamicconverters.com/converters.htm

P.S. It's not hard to tell the real racers from the keyboard racers. :wink:

Thats because hes at altitude. Every engine I've dynoed sees over a 100hp drop from dyno to track accounting for driveline and altitude losses. I bought a small block mustang from a guy in Columbus ohio that car typically ran 6.9 -7.0 in 1/8. When i brought it here it ran 7.4 -7.5. We have since widdled it down to 6.85 but took a fair bit of work.Johns engine when corrected is nearly 700hp (i get 685 corrected)so very close to rehers claim.

I dispute your $(can) to $(us) cost difference.
The dollar exchange is 30%. Not 60%.
I was just being a smart ass. You are correct,but we are always on the shat end of the stick up here so we get cranky lol

“Find some air” hahaha that’s the best Perf tip I’ve ever received. If it was only that easy. When I have tried it on Q16 fuel it does really help out to the tune of nearly a tenth on the bad days. But I’m a low budget guy and that stuff is expensive. This season I’m trying to find a sponsor to help with fuel costs. In exchange their name will wheelie last fans on every pass 😬

The cam is right around 286/296@50 .750/.720 lift.
I'd replace that.

Reality check Vegan
You should of specced a higher rated engine due to your elevation
You did not due to your short arms
This thread is about blood from a stone
Which is expected from a tight wad

You were way funnier as a drunk in that 80s movie. Beat it, not everyone is rich or an a hole. You are one of the 2 and maybe both.
