Since guesses on horsepower have dried up. Let's try a new game.

Guess the 'top secret' cam specs. I'll go first.

234/242 @ 0.050 111+3
My guess:

236/244 @ 0.050" 108 LSA +4

I’ll play this game but I want to know if it’s a solid or not and I’m not digging through 5 pages of CNNs desktop dyno to see if it was mentioned. Who knows in here?

Doesn't say. "fun street car" "my kid's car" so I assumed somewhat aggressive HR. If it's solid my guess is invalid.

...single plane with 111...did that just happen ?...
My custom solid roller for the 289 with the same intake manifold Brent is using came in at 111.65 LSA. Do you want to know the lobe separation for the intake and exhaust?

LSA is more or less meaningless by itself in my opinion.

He said a peek of 7000 RPM. So I assume solid roller and a shift point under 7500 RPM.

Hydraulic. Compression about 11.1/11.2 depending on flycuting .in process of that . I want it to run on 93. Fun street car. Everyone has a different opinion on that probably

I would thought with your 10.1 comp. A little less lsa. Than you have . But obviously what you have is working well.

Deal with what? Lashing it once and maybe doing the immeasurable task of taking valve covers off to check again once or twice a year? If you’re referencing the reliability I could understand that argument but I think that has also been blown way out of proportion. This is not an insult post just wondering. I have to put that in for all the snowflakes that can’t take criticism. You wanted 7500 rpm and chose a hyd roller that seems like larger compromise than the “short comings” of just getting a solid roller.

Coupe in my sig eventually had a 392 with a solid.
Never had any issues. Never really drove it alot tho.
This one is going get driven. So reliability is important .
