My friend told me that he had over 320@ .050 hydraulic flat tappet cam in his nova. Luckily he had stock TBI injection to keep up with it.

" What is it in that there motor??? A "High Lift" cam? Thats what mine said on the box" Bragging he has some old secret.

Guy that said this claim thats what is said on the box 35 years ago. His motor runs like shit, and gives 7 in of vacuum to his power brakes, wants me to fix it.. SOmehow it wasn't high enough lift to break his stock valve springs.. And he thinks the noisy idle is making him fly like a bat outa hell :roll:

I ignore his phone calls, and hope he doesnt show up at my house [-o<
As I'm approaching 40,I still think I'm 20. What the hell is wrong with me?
