    Chris,

    I FINALLY got my motor done and running! It's been awhile since you provided me with the cam and valve train but thought you might want to know. I started a thread about it here under "555 Pump Gas Dyno Guess"
    Take a look at the numbers and let me know what you think!

    Lol I had customers like that. I even held their signed title and give me a key for collateral because they were drivng around with my tranny they didnt pay for in full. When they paid in full I gave them back the title and key.I also knew repo guys too so Them paying up wasnt a issue. Come on Chris dont you own Straub Financial Group? Steve

    Hi Chris,
    I am ready to get your cam you have ground for the 215 cast heads. I have a few things to check once I get the heads back from being milled, such as push rod length. I will wait until I check and will order push rods also from you if needed. I might also be interested in springs to match cam. I had mentioned before i have a set of hyd roller lifters, do you suggest i change them also?
    talk soon, thank you
    ken

    Good morning Chris, I am Edd Upp (uppster) at Team Chevelle. I am wanting to get my 69 Chevelle ready to sell by making it easier to drive. I can email the spec sheet of the engine if you like, but general specs are in the post titled "decaming my 540". I would be interested to have your opinion on a cam. Thanks Edd

    Since the heads are ported I will need the numbers on the heads. I have had a 496 make 917HP before at 7500 rpm so it is possible but I will have to have the heads numbers.
