I would like to use a solid for budget reasons. Which one for a 406 with AFR or Profiler 195's, pump gas, 300-25 Holley. Hoping for 500hp with open 1.75 supercomp's. Thanks:D

Do you want iron or aluminum ? The Patriot stuff has gotten some good reveiws,I will be using a set for a budget build for a customer.If you want to step it up from there I would look at some of the stuff that Chad Speier has to offer. He does a CNC ported version of the ProComps that is supposed to be killer,or Bryce Mulvey at Dr.J's does some good stuff also.You can also look at some of the RHS stuff,have had good luck with those also.

PS-It would be a wise move and money well spent to let Danny grind that cam for you.

Sounds nice! What kind of durations are you suggesting? Do you think this would hold up in a street driven app?

I ran a herbert solid with great luck.. specs were .540/.520 - 260/270 @ .050 on a 110 LS

Pushed my chevelle at 3450#'s to 12.20's 12.1x's with a 355 ci sbc / flat top piston / pro topline 220 heads 2.02I 1.60EX 64cc chamber / vic jr / 780 vac sec Holley. With a 150 nitrous hit it ran a 11.30.

Ran my car for 2 years like this with hundreds of street miles, and countless bottles of nitrous through it...

my little emc cam is 276 @ .020" / 244 @ .050" / 156 @ .200" .344" lobe lift , go dart iron with my cam , a 200 cc or 220 cc is plenty. my zzz heads were only a 194cc slightly raised and straightend runners. look at an rpm air gap and plan on staying under 6800. torque average is what its all about here. this cam and a new designed head im sure we could make 580 / with 530 ft on pump gas under 6500 in a 383"

I looked at this on the Comp simulator. Depending on the intake and exhaust, it predicted very good numbers at 6500rpm! My only issue is my externally balanced crank. I'm not sure that I want to spin that high. Or maybe I'm being overly cautious?:smt102 Thanks for the rec

The Crane is better, 530hp on gas with Camel Hump stock intake runners

No BS numbers from happy dyno. 10.teens @ 131-133mph EVERY pass @ 2850 race weight not pushing the egnine

Since he has left the team, its in his Dragster running 8.60-8.70s

Stock GM block, stock GM crank, flat tops, stock camel hump intake runners, bowl ported, ported and polished exhaust runners, as cast vic jr

Got any more info on this motor? When you say "on gas", do you mean race fuel?

that cam is running mid to high 11's @116 in a 3700lb vette
BFgoodrich radials 3.73's 700r4 full exhaust
on the chassis dyno it makes power over a 50mph spread and is very drivable

Crane sell the same came under their own part number as do Melling,Elgin,SpeedPro
