Thanks for all the input. I am in no hurry seing that it is January. I am going to see what Bob has to say first. I gave him all the specs and he said he would get back to me in a few days. Eveyone seems to think he is the cam guru. He thinks I should up a cam for 5400 RPM. He thinks 1HP per inch should be easy to make.

Anyone keep in contact with Bob on a regular basis. I called him and emailed him on 1/20 and he still has not gotten back to me. I called today and got his machine.

I talked to him last week . He will call you back, just call and leave another message. He may have a little bit of work this time of year it takes time to call everybody. He will spend more than a minute or two with you when he does call you.

He called me back today and said he was pretty backed up. He is still putting the cam specs together.
Thanks,

Just wanted to give a update on my project. I have the engine tore down and eveything looks good. Only have about 60 hours on it since the last tear down. Bob has had an answer for every question I have had. He is setting up a cam with .595 lift int/exh and about 226/230 duration @.500 with 112 LSA. I am not sure of the exact specs. I inquired about the 4/7 swap for HP and it apears that with port fuel injection I would not benefit. I gave him the OK yesterday and I should be getting the Cam soon. I will let everyone know the results.

I just received my cam yesterday and I installed it last night. I am getting the rest of my parts in today and tomorow. I hope to have it fired up on the hose this weekend. Besides the cam I also purchaced a Marine DUI distributor with computer controled timing.

Be sure and take a video clip with sound when you got it running on the ear muffs / hose.

I have a very simular set up with the exception of being fuel injected and can't wait.

PS Thanks for the PM's
