    Default Big Chevy 588 rebuild questions

    I have a couple of questions regarding rebuilding my 588 BBC for I/O application. I have been running 114 LSA camshafts because I thought I may put blowers on these motors in the future, but have decided to stay N/A, is there any power to be gained by going less LSA on the camshaft with N/A, or less L/C as well?
    Second has anyone experimented or used with the new Super Victor 565 or 632 intakes, a local racer mentioned they have seen some power gains with this intake, as much as 40 or 50 HP in testing?

    I have dry Stellings so the LSA is not an issue.

    With dry exhaust yes a more aggressive lobe sep can be used and power can be found. Depending on heads and max rpm you want out of the mills a broader flatter power band can be had.
