    We changed the cam in our 414 cid. INDY head stroker ,from .587 lift flat tappet to .683 roller knowing we would gain some more poneys.
    the first pull was to 5,700 , making sure the carb was mixing the gasses correctly. Bingo 20 more hp.at just 5,700 ,after setting the timing at 34 degrees , and checking the valves we made a coupel of 7,000 rpm. pulls, she made 603.86 hp. @6,600 and 530.46tq @ 5,700 , a total gain of 50 hp. over the .587. WONDERFUL , the conclusion we came up with INDY heads like lift .

    Nice Results! I'm sure the quicker profile of the roller helped some too.

    I believe he's running mid tens but races mostly 1/8 mile. It's a very sweet ride. Not many people can lay claim to having a 10 sec. street car. :love7:

    Happy to hear of your new horsepower gain......The launch on your car gets me every time. Sweeeet

    Also, looks like today is your birthday. Maybe you'll dip into the high 20's 8) Good luck and be safe.

    We made 4 passes in 3100 ft. air . 10.22
    10.23
    10.23
    10.20

    learning the new shift points , and launch points will take a little time , the last pass was changing the shift points on the 1-2 shift .We think it will get better as we relearn the car.
