Re: Need recommendations for BBC 496 combo
Walt, what gear and stall are you running?
I was actually thinking that my cam was gonna be a bit too small, and I was REAL tempted to go larger, cause I thought my 509 would swallow cam. I guess it probably does at higher speeds. But good thing I didnt go any larger, in fact, may be a touch to big for my driving style. The real issue is the fuel metering at very low rpms/high loads in OD, the carb just gets a little wacky. I bet fuel injection would help my situation out, but I just cant use OD till I'm really moving good, at least 1800 rpms in OD. That's why I'm looking to change my OD from .64 to .82.
Pat, what TKO - the .64 or .82, and what gear? I'll bet Harold will recommend the Voodoo 241/249 .625, but on a 112. There was a guy here who built a 496, but used the 231/239 .600 Voodoo, made like 575hp and close to 600ft lbs. His heads had some work I believe. I figure you will be at least right there.
