Beau,All I'm saying is that in comparison to other more modern engines we are leaving a lot of power on the table across much of the powerband. We push things like 800 HP on stock bottom end, but won't inspect a timing belt every oil change?
Can't fault someone from being gun shy!Beau,
I am more afraid of ruining alot of good parts for 20-30hp.....not worth it IMO. I guess I am just gun shy from having a tensioner failure in the past.....even though I have a billet tensioner/ati dampner now it still sits in the back of my mind.
What about a fully ported head running high lift cams? :hide: He is going to smoke you :lol:Can't fault someone from being gun shy!
I'd rather take a stock head milled for lift with some springs and shims, and run as much lift as I could I'd probably pick up at least half of what a fully ported head would make running garbage cams.
