    All good, it’s for a slight lope to it; doesn’t really have that rough sound to it, entry level chop if we can call it that hahaha. Considering what others are saying regarding the limits on the stock ecu, I don’t think you’ll be getting too much lope either on idle unfortunately... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hahaha that’s mad chuck us some photos if you like! The dizzy gear you need for aftermarket cams in crossflow is the Crow DG2. I’m running a Crow 14892 which is 214@0.05” and .510” lift on a 112 lobe You in Sydney area by any chance ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey mate all solid advice here. Agree with Greg, definitely do valve springs seems to be the general consensus. My cam is a little bigger and I’ve gotten away with standard rockers and standard pushrods without a problem turning to 5000rpm. So if you’re going for a little upgrade using standard efi then I can’t imagine you would need anything more than new valve springs. Also don’t forget the crow dizzy gear as well as well when going aftermarket cam! Btw love the username [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ah ok what you want to do is click on his videos, they should be the most recent ones from memory; one has a few million views that’s part 1(the title is radical engine build or something) then part 2 is after it The videos are quite long Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For anyone interested in more on the 300 cube engines, type in Elisons Machine Shop into Facebook; he’s doing a pull down on an insane aspo one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sort of on topic, but does anyone here know if a Barra crank will bolt into crossflow? I remember the EF cranks go into certain crossflow blocks (but can be machined to fit into other crossflow blocks?), and I think the Barra cranks can go into 4.0 SOHC blocks? Reason I’m going down this path is Spool is putting together a 4.2L stroker crank (103mm strike from memory) for the Barra Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hahahaha can confirm this! Was driving mine yesterday and was popping like crazy on decel, no idea if the warm weather made a difference! But yes this definitely works Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hopefully can find the dyno run on the net somewhere would be cool to hear. One of the TCM cars (not sure if still around) had an aspo 265 that was claimed to have 400+rwhp aspirated and that sounded very cool Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ah yes I think I have seen his YouTube, from memory he’s the one that’s very well spoken in his videos Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Awesome thread mate can’t wait to see how you progress with this! I’m running the exact same box and coil as you (if your coil is also black then we’re exactly the same to the colour). Greg helped me out with the MAP sensor and it works great; sometimes it gets a little tricky cause it alters the timing by rpm and manifold vacuum simultaneously at all times - but once it’s set up it works a treat.
