Cleelopez: Nice.. Did you go solid.. Hydr roller m,flat tappets.. ? I just had similar
numbers with the motor I had built... I went hydr flat tappets.. My first
attempt.. But I wonder how long the cam will hold up.. Now it's done and
feel I should have went hydr roller for the extra 400$
Dosalt: I want one with around 100 hp and 600 Tq. I was wondering if it was possible
vertrider75: i'm in the process of building a 496 rite now any reccomidations on cam?
cncmotorsports: @jonesblitzkrieg The camshaft was a hydraulic roller, it was one of our
Buba Loui: Why Iron heads? Wouldn't you have made more power with a set of aluminum
Buba Loui: Cudo's for Dart heads.
cncmotorsports: The customer had a budget, and already had iron heads.
SportModDriver88: I love those torque numbers! I'm about to start buildnig a 496 for my boat
and am looking for a similar setup but with an oval port head and maybe a
bit less cam but a hydraulic roller. I'd really like to hit 500 ft/lbs
torque at about 2500-3000 rpms. Any camshaft grinds for this keeping in
mind wet exhaust so reversion is an issue? Thanks!
Dosalt: 100 - 200 hp is more than enough. I want big torque numbers. has to run on
gasoline and not dirty diesel.
cncmotorsports: 100 HP?
cncmotorsports: @Cleelopez @Cleelopez Hydraulic roller cam is what we used. You can make
good HP numbers with out the need of huge durations numbers with the
hydraulic roller cam. Keep's the engine very very drivable for the
cncmotorsports: @vertrider75 Give us a call 800-341-1528 or 605-692-1697 we can get you set
up with a good cam for your combination.
BigChevyFTW: Tha thing sounds like its starving for fuel and in need of a serious
jonesblitzkrieg: what were your cam specs on this build? i am building a big block for my
4x4 dually lookin to lay down some numbers like that. i just picked up a
set of the same heads just need to get my cam and valvetrain
grumpy159: This motor went into my '79 Chev short box - this is the second engine CNC
has done for me - previously they built a 421 SBC stroker for my Boss Hoss
bike - this BB is a tire shredder!!! With 3.25 gears, 33X21.50X15 MT on the
back - it smokes them at 30mph - from a stop - smokes them them trhough 1st
and 2nd and a nice chirp into 3rd-----awesome motor. And like my 421 SB, it
is tight, dry, smooth and is a daily driver - best of all - it runs on 91
octane all day long :)
