As far as roller cams not being magic,thats true,lol. I have 3.5 gears a 5 spd and I can plod along in 5th at 2,000 rpm doing 60 mph with no problems.My power starts under 2,000. If Im in 1st gear and use more than 1/2 throttle at or before 2,000 rpm the tires break loose.If Im in second gear and plant the throttle anywhere near 3,000 rpm the tires break loose. I know my engine will rev to 6500 rpm but I put a 6k chip in the ignition to keep the car controlled easier.Its a small block and n.a.
