Same mods as mine with the exception of an iron block, smaller pulley than I have (3.3" vs 3.4") and an electric water pump. Check his sig and gallery for details.

I knew it was an overbored block, wasn't sure if it were aluminum or cast. Also, what PI heads are you running. Stock or ported PI's and what stage cams?

You guys should be pretty close.

Yea, we should be very close! He may even have an edge on me.

As far as I know, he has the same Comp XE268H cams that I have. The heads we both have are stock PI heads.

See here for the 268 cam grind specs.

http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/c...?csid=966&sb=1

Edit: Here's the 274 specs.

http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/c...?csid=967&sb=0

I'm not sure why he has both listed in his signature. It's either one or the other.

Good decision Darren, Gates belts are unmatched in quality and service life. I've had a gates on the cougar now for 5 years and it doesn't even have a single small split or crack in it.

Now I know why he has both numbers in his sig lol. Intake 268 Exhaust 274 The part number is the xe268h. Which is the same cam your running right Ron?

Oh and Ron you could have had a torch on your tires today, and you still would not have hooked lol. I spun on almost every pass, and my second pass I literally came to a stop 10 ft from the start from spinning. I still have a stock bird btw, did not do the mods yet. I was caught completely off guard by me breaking loose considering my bird is still stock lol.

Ah, thanks for the pick. Yea, those are the XE268H cams. Fix your sig Darren.

You can also check out the link to the cam grind specs that I posted above if you're interested.

Yes, those are the same cams I have. You're mistaken, actually intake is 267 not 268 and exhaust is 273 not 274. (According to the box) - The grind sheet shows 268/274 duration. So yea, that makes sense.

That sucks about track prep today. In my experience Rockingham rarely gets it right and if they do it's usually late in the day. I made my best runs late in the day at Rockingham right before they shut the track down for the night.

Fayetteville does a much better job with track prep.

That surprises me that you shredded a belt. Good thing you had a spare.

I've been running mine since Rob finished my build in late 2009. I'll have to give it a good inspection.

It may be time to replace mine as well ...

It must be all the red paint on the timing cover slowing it down. J/k better luck next time Darren, we've all been to tracks with bad prep. What was the deal with the belt though? Did you toss it and then shred it or is something else a miss?

We need to get you off the road and back home lol, your getting ornary the longer your away I was only trying to point out why he might have put both numbers in his sig. If you go to summit, the info there says 268/284 lol, then when you click the link it says 268/274. You are correct though on his boxes the numbers you stated are there in plain view

Anywho, the track sucked while we were there, Darren looked so p/o'd I thought he was going to punch kittens, I got spanked by a Ford ricer J/K Robert. It was a bad racing day all around, can't wait to get back racing at Fayetteville. Look forward to seeing you let your beast fly soon too Ron.

Chris I believe that the chief said that the gator was a bit to small. Put on my gates spare and no more issues so far

Yea, I talked to Rob about that last night. The electric water pump has a slightly larger pulley on it than the standard water pump, so the 111" belt that you and I are using is a bit too small.

Rob said we need a 111.5" belt.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
