Head flow numbers or casting numbers would be nice. Also deck height, head gasket thickness, pistons, vehicle weight, gearing, etc.

Don't need any of that.

Exhaust set up and cam are most important.

Should have some lope to it. The more overlap and smaller the separation angle the more lope, generally. Then idle rpms has a lot to do with the sound.

If you drop the idle down it will seem to have more lope. However if you go to low it's a ***** to tune fore good acceleration.

If your cam is 244/244 @ 0.050" you're good. If it's advertised duration, your low.

If you give more info as to which heads you have, intake, roller cam? Solid or Hydraulic etc.. Someone will let you know if the overall set up makes sense. Killer idle lope followed by detonation at high RPMs will be short lived fun. You'll get chicks, but only in your driveway.

Nope, not even close. Add 15 duration at .050" to those numbers, or reduce lobe seperation to 102-104.

If all you want is sound, go buy one of those Big Mutha Thumpr's, they are made for guys who value sound over actual performance.

Lunati Voodoo 60105 should get you close if you want Hydralic flat tappet.

If can go roller the 60132 and flowmasters will give you pretty much the same sound he has.

Both cams will like the 11.5:1 compression and would be decent with the Iron Eagle Platinum heads. What intake do you have? Forged bottom and pistons or Hyper?

Yeah, just stick a huge bump stick in there and call it good. That'll work.
