The cam is a HR, 243/251 at .050", CL of 103*, needs 9.5 CR, 2400-5600 RPM. Called a "Big Daddy Rattler". One of those listen to my bad *** ride cams.

OP, did you buy the heads assembled or did you buy bare heads and have them professionally assembled?

Don't know why you wouldn't pump the comp to @10.8 to 1. Why cheap out on your heads? Just doesn't make since to me my friend.

I didn't believe my buddies until I seen the pics lol.

Never been a fan of those cams with less exhaust than intake lift ?? I would't use one . That cam you are going for now is a bit more like it
HP ... Hmmm I'll have a think on that Is that cam a roller or flat tappet ?
