This was just a cam change to hydraulic roller as well with just a catalog howards cam and same i think the same lifters. Reason i did the search was i was second guessing John on getting over 500 horsepower with the l36 heads and solid flat tappit cam. So is it the carburetor that is loosing 40 horses and 50 torque.

I can answer part of your question...
You are referring to this thread..

The 469HP/510lbs was the observed power... on a -5F day with outside air coming in.
It was a negative correction that day, to 438HP/499lbs for the J607 correction of 60F, 29.92 Baro, 0% humidity.
All the photos seem to be missing in that thread, so it may be hard to follow.
