It certainly could. That is the time to make some upgrades. I am replacing the cam anyway, so one that is a little larger doesn't cost any more money. The heads will be apart, so a little port work would be easy to do. We are decking the block already, so it is real easy to cut a little more and bump the compression. Same with the heads. The list goes on. And none of it really costs much, if any, more money. Actually, because of that, most of the rebuilds I do end up with more power because it is cheap to do at that point. When do you want to start on yours

You just can't go wrong with Morels. Crower also makes a really nice piece. I really don't do many solids anymore. With all of the advancements in hyd. roller stuff, there is seldomly a need for a solid.

Thanks!

I've heard of guys running tight-lash solids on a hyd. roller profiles and picking up a little more up top.

Does anyone ever run hyd. on a solid roller profile?

Sure. I just had someone send me their build sheets for some engines they had built recently. They were built by a well known builder and aren't what they are suppose to be. He wants me upgrade them, so I had him send me the info on the engines. They have a solid roller cam with hyd. roller lifters. Not sure how well it works, but that's what it is.
