I will buy a degree wheel for the weekend if I can find one in town, the rest of the stuff I have.
Quick question, I've never done it before but just watched a few videos. You say not to advance the cam. My cam card shows:
IN open 11 BTDC, IN closes 39 ABDC, EX opens 51 bbdc and EX closes -1 atdc. 110 - the above centerline will make this cam 6 degree advanced. What does that last part mean?
The 9hp peak hp loss doesn't sound like much. But that just takes into account the compression difference and all other things being equal, right? I'm wondering what the difference will be because of the valve size. Intakes are both 2.11 I measured, but the exhaust is 1.66 on the lower compression heads. The 11's were rated at nearly 100hp less in 1970. Is that likely because a smaller cam on the 350/400 with 2bbrl intake and carb or are the heads going to flow less?
I have been working on a 1970 GTO for over 2 years, but just picked up a 72 Lemans in original paint this weekend. Threw the motor I had in the GTO into the lemans and drove all weekend, so much fun! I know I could probably be a little better off and more happy picking a different cam to better suit my needs, but this is what I have for the time being.
