    Default 489 BB Chev pump gas AFR 290 hyd. roller build...

    Just got a call from another satisfied customer;

    489 BB Chev, 290 oval AFR's, 10.5:1, pump gas, Victor Jr, 1000cfm ProSystems 4150, Straub hyd. roller;

    725 tq @ 5200
    793 hp @ 6200

    Engine builder/dyno operator spent a day trying to figure out what's wrong with the dyno because he couldn't believe the numbers.

    Nothing's wrong.

    No, this was a customer's engine that Chris did the cam for. It is pretty darn impressive.

    was goin to say something smart like must of been on Westech's but you kind of covered that with the operator checking his dyno nice to see somebody using the smaller head and showing what the right size runner can do

    Customer got a top end package from us. We did not build it. Enginebuilder is in Beauzier City, LA (spelling). I don't know the engine builder.

    The new 290 and 300 AFR ovals are very impressive pieces with flow numbers that are right there with their 315 CNC head.
