    Dan, off subject do you still have the specs for your rear diff. Because I'm following you having the specs would be great.

    Car should trap around 6000 + converter slip. It will have a 6al-2 so i'll set the limiter only as high as i feel it needs ,no point in buzzing it too high,too many times. No matter what happens ,i will post dyno results .

      I don't remember but did anyone answer your question that is running juice. With the juice added rpms must jump up pretty quick. So what do they use.

      Let me see if i can find everything from Strange tomorrow . If not just let me know where and what you want me to measure. The numbers i gave to Strange where based on the inside measurements from wheel to wheel. I knew i wanted to run Torq-thrust 15x10 with a 14.5 section width M&H cheater slick. After I mini tubed the car i just stuck the wheels in the wheel wells and got my number . I felt is was a safer way for me to do it because i also wanted Wilwood disc rear brakes and didn't know what the brake stand off measurement would be so i let them do the math as they were selling me a complete rear, brakes and all. Worked out well. Those 15x10 wheels have a 3 3/4" back space ,not sure what wheels your running , that will change the overall length .

      I will use a kit from dr.diff or someone like that. Lots of suppliers or do it the old fashion way build my own.

        I just can't wrap my head around the "how" to have stock disc rear brakes when there never were any on for example a 70 Roadrunner??

        Since the 6074 lifters are rated for use with spring loads suitable for mild to mid-level solid rollers, I’m sure with the right set of lobes, coupled with suitable spring loads and plunger preload....... 6500 “shouldn’t” be a big problem.

        The street lifters can’t safely be run with those same kind of spring loads.

            Quick update , my engine builder called to order the hi-rpm Morel roller lifter and was told 8-10 weeks out. I called Hugh's and they said the same thing ,in my conversation with them it was mentioned that they are having a lot of success with the Howard # 91774 roller lifter. This particular part number is for a Gaterman lifter not the Morel street lifter that may be another Howard part number. I was told by Hugh's this is the one to use on a build such as mine. I'm going to give them a shot and see what happens.
