Make sure you have an expert tune it for you. It should rip along pretty well.

Spent four hours with the tuner on the dyno today, final hp number was 479 but I didnt realize there wasnt a torque number with it although at one point during the tune process I saw a torque number of 456 so that final number might be higher. I also noticed my dyno sheet was in mph and not rpm. I wonder if that can be corrected in the file? All in all the car feels much stronger... ;)

Well, who was I kidding? I thought I would like the "sleeper" sound of my car with the GT-11 cam in it and though it makes good power I "NEED" (lol) a more aggressive cam. So it looks like Wednesday morning will be cam swap day and retune in the afternoon. Putting in the Comp Cams 54-454-11. Its 227, 243 @.050 and 614, 624 on a 113 center. I guess I'll lose a little bottom end (who cares got 3.91 gear) and hopefully pick up a bit (ok, more that a "bit") on the top end. Anyone else use this cam yet? :rock5thgen:

You might wanna look into getting a custom cam at this point. You'll get more out of it than from an off the shelf cam.

Sounds pretty good to me! I'm going with a cam soon. Probably towards the end of Winter. I don't know which one yet. Most likely a custom cam. Who did the install? How much did they charge?
Did it myself, I've always built all my gen 1 small blocks so I figured it couldn't be that hard and it wasn't ;) I also installed a Edelbrock two piece timing cover to make future cam changes easier.:rolleyes:
