What exactly is your L/S on that cam since it never changes, sorry if I missed it some where. I know your centerline is 108 and I confused it with L/S.

Re: question on camshaft, what do u think?

I found your C/R is 10.5-1 static, you are losing alot of power on the dynamic side with that cam I would guess, probably 12-1 would be a minimum static C/R with that cam, especially with a 104 L/S, 12-1 c/r, 109 L/S and 4500 stall and I bet you might shave a whole second, but my posting is easy com...
