    no difference in power if both were to come from me. Sound will change as the solid roller will be crisper due to its design

    Hi Chris,
    How much HP gain do you see going from a HR cam to a SR cam of similar specifications and how much HP could I gain by going to a SR from my current HR cam you cut for me ? It still needs to be reliable as far as valve train wear over an extended period of time while driven on the street.

    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
