How much cam shaft does it take to make max power @ 6100 in a13.5:1 555 with 350 canfields and 2/750's I know the heads are big but that's what I've got.
V,It's turning a Aggressor A with an inducer 5800 now I just think the right cam might give it a few more hundred rpm's
Out of curiousity, what RPM do you figure your current cam would make max power if it was on a dyno?The cam in it now is like 272/276. .700/.700 110/106in don't know any of the pressures. I was going to lower the compression but I desided to just try another cam. Gear I guess I just need call around.
Well I can't say I totally agree with the LSA(unless it was blown) but at least your thinking of lowering the power band not raising it, which tends to be the normal thought. With those heads and that cam, with the a set of 850s or 950s, I'd guess the came could make power to 7000 easy. Just a guess, but there is already more cam and head there than your spinning the engine.I'm thinking it's over camed. Just guessing I think that cam would max out at 6700 maybe????? I'm thinking 260/266 .700/710 cut on a 114 LS but I don't know
We all do Vmax. Thats why we keep making more and mpore power. But at some point you have to ask yourself, how much cake are you willing to hold in your hand while you devoure the rest.Thanks GN I've been told to just put an A/B in it let it eat. But don't want to loose any hole shoot and I have one now. Want cake and eat it too
X2. This will take the guess work out of the equationOver the winter Grady I'd take her to a dyno with both cams and see where the chips lay and cut the impeller to match. With a good pump your gonna holeshot just fine and gain sum speed. Thats just the way I have done things and it worked out pretty good for me.
IMO your boat rocks, I'd just enjoy it
I have to agree. Trying to get the engine to match you impeller with a camshaft is not going to get it done. If your trying to get the lower the power band into a range you current impeller is dictating that one thing. But trying to gain RPM with a given impeller with nothing more than a cam change is probably not going to happen.X2. This will take the guess work out of the equation
