what series are you going with? i went with the streetbeast series and ended up with .596/.574 and 230*/240* at .050". whatever you end up with you will be happy you dealt with Ed. After the first reply from him i emailed him back and he sent me a specs sheet.

Weren't you going to get them Brodix a once over and port job?

JMertins is building or just finished building a nice little stroker.

But there is more to custom cams than just lift and duration numbers.

Well to truly get a custom cam done right you need to flow the heads after they have been ported and polished to see what has been done to them. Also I am sure Ed would love to know also :winks

It is not that he believes that you will pick up this or that but in the flow number low, middle and high. Not all porters can make good numbers as they will reshape bowls, floors, exhaust & intake ports. Also increase in chamber size will make a difference.

I mean if you can get someone who knows what they are doing and knows those heads they can easily get 50 cfm outta them and open up the cc by lets say 15 to 20. That in itself makes a hell of a difference.

That's why having them ported and polished is a double edge sword as I have seen guys who say they do and all they end up doing is slowing down velocity and create turbulence. There is more science to it than just hogging out the casting and making things look smooth and shiny.

You also know there are varying degrees of port jobs and not all the port jobs are the same. Just saying as it is good to have all the information before you have a custom cam ground.

Well when my 347 was finally put together I have some TW ported and polished flowing in the 310 range at 600 and a custom cam all controlled by a 80mm ProM MAF and it drove around great and idle well also. Up top it was a little lean so I had to bump up the fuel but now I got the Moates and have been playing with that for a few days. Gotta go spin the rollers soon and see what they tell me :winks
