|i would love for the peak hp to shift to the right and the tq to stay put|
before variable cam timing, that would have been difficult. Today, with the right tuning, you'll hardly notice the torque dip, but the power up top will come on strong.
You are going to roughly shift power 1000rpm to the right with the 264 (268?) Tomei.
Your peak power should be right around/at 7000-7250rpm. If it were me (and it's not) and it were my show, I wouldn't spin it past 7400rpm.
stop street racing. It's totally gay..
|thanks for the input, im excited about the extra power band i am going to get and happy i upgraded my valve train to compensate. im not the one to rev that high on a daily basis, specially with gas being like it is.|
Those 264 Tomei's are good stuff. Would be my choice (or 272) for cams with the non revup VQ.
Your hp suffers up top because of the "normal" intake restrictions (plenum, etc) of the non revup. Those cams will CERTAINLY open that can of worms up.
Did you do a plenum spacer of some sorts? That helps the inbalance on the non revup.
I would imagine you'll top 280whp.. But, don't worry if you don't, it'll still pull like lightning with excellent throttle response. Dynos are just rollers that put out inaccurate numbers from dyno to dyno.. Don't put much stock in them. As long as you our happy that is all that matters. And that you have more power than before.. and can use it more often.
Did you touch the rear diff yet? LSD or 3.9 + R&P? THAT, with cams is fire... pure fire.
|R&P = Ring & Pinion|
|R&P??? what is that...just curious.|
p.s. The reason I mentioned not going above 7400 was due to your current bottom end (short block). Otherwise, you could be up around 7800-8200, but your cams will not pull that high.
I'd be stoked too. I once had a set of cams in your spec that I was going to install. Hence the reason I'm giving you the numbers.
You're going to have a nice setup. What about the rest of the car? (suspension)
|tis true. when i was richer the car ran like crap. im thinking with cams in it it will want it a lil richer. any thoughts. i think icobra is around 11 ish.|
