Re: How about this combo?
Just goes to show that with a little bit of effort and sorting you can extract a few more horses without having to resort to spending massive amounts of cash. Also those guys at Racetech would have checked the flow of the heads and chosen a cam accordingly. No ass plucks, no guess work. Imagine what they could have built if they used an AFD head/Roller package, using the same bottom end :).
Do yourself a favour people, DONT run a cam or combination that some backyard boy has recommended. Seek professional advice, especialy when it comes to Cylinder heads and flow. Select the approprite cam to work as a total package. Anyone can stuff a big lift cam into a wild geared, over converted car and get it to 'SORT OF' work. The real record breaking stuff comes from people who spend countless hours making sure everything works in sync.
Oh, lastly, there was a guy in Adelaide in the mid 80's who ran consistent 11.80's, running a Sig Erson Viking 100 cam (about .510" lift), dual plane manifold, 850DP in an XY, 4V Closed Chambered, stock stroked clevo with gears, slicks and a very well set up suspension package. No GAS. Can be done!
Do you think he did his home work? If anyone here goes back that far, it was a very clean Black XY with Auotdrag Centrelines. He spent more time on that front end getting it perfect to plant every single HP he could to the strip... Now that's dedication!
