        VERY nice. It strikes me that the start-up time was really short before loading the engine, though?
        Same deal with shutdown after the pull - that seemed like a really abrupt kill?

        I'll go back to drooling over your list of cars in your signature now...:thumbsup:

        It was already warmed up and had a couple short pulls on it. That was the first one to 7600.

          Yeah. But that's just right for a 8-71.

            So my next question is what timing gear setup to use on this build? Do I go double roller chain
            or gear drive? This will be a mostly street driven car with a solid roller cam thats 258/264 @50
            .638/.626 lift.

                I'm sure others will chime in. but I think gear drives are typically quite noisy. For a street car, better to go with the chain.

                    Double roller will be just fine. That is all I have in mine.
