Just been playing around with my dyno program before I freshen my 351. Basically its 10.5:1 CR, ported iron 2v's with 4v valves, Crane F238 etc etc.
It seemed to make pretty good power and torque according to the program, 435 hp @ 6000 and 399ftlb @5000.
When I retarded the cam 10degrees, it jumped to 465 hp @6250 and 415 ftlb @ 5000. Not that I would retard it that far tho.
I'm not sure how accurate these dyno programs are, so Iwas wondering if anyone has actually tried retarding or advancing the cam timing with a similar combination and what the results were.
