ya ..I read the article when it came out ..nice ! one thing that caught my eye was the lift numbers on that relatively small duration cam . i wonder if thats a miss print .
**228/226 duration at .050, .629/.598-inch lift, 114 LSA**





"After upgrading the turbo and adding aluminum heads, the V-6 did not want to stay together. A blown set of head gaskets and burnt piston or two was the last straw. It had been 10 years of struggle and strife "


Wakey Wakey... smell the Eggs And Bacey ! :D

It isn't in their cam catalog... so it must be custom?
Welcome to Futral Motorsports

Once I get this Gen I SBC up and running I'll begin work on a turbo LSX project.

most likely is a custom grind . Im running a custom ground hyd roller 238/232 duration at .050, .607/.607-inch lift (1.7ratio) , 115 LSA . and that by no means is a stupid crazy cam . Maybe he's one of those guys that likes to keep his cam specs a secret and put it out there to throw people off . :)

Dam...you must have a lot of spare time . :D :)

"Being struck by another car during a race turned out to be somewhat of a blessing in disguise, as Ryan was able to use a good portion of the insurance money to upgrade the engine..."

Interesting insurance coverage?

Aside from the basic architecture being very sound, it is the software that I really appreciate.

Good luck on the install!
