    700hp 493 build specs thoughts

    I know you didn't, I agree with your CR theory, its just an example of how you can do it on low cr when you do not have a full on race engine designed. It all comes down to use. Although it can still be done on high cr if you pick the right cam for some street use as Dom and others have shown...

    Way more than that. Study expansion ratio. Cr is it of course but this is a pump gas deal on V-power. Dom Thumper runs the old Isky .660 and has done for years@12.1:1, no issues on pump, I could not persuade him to do that.

    I tend to agree with you, I heard bad things as well true or not, doesn't inspire one. He wouldn't go with a source kit cos the shipping was too expensive he said. Who am I to argue with that, He's paying nearly £4000 for the eagle kit to be delivered to his door if thats what he's actually...
