Yeah I saw that for the second time and still cant believe it! They got 30 more horsepower by just swapping the firing order. Hell, if thats the case I should have just bought the $200 cam instead of spending $1,000 for a stroker kit

they got 30 horse power on a realy efficient 572 cubic inch race motor that already made almost 700 horse power, i wonder what kind of gains you would see on an average warmed over sbc.

I love seeing all that fancy expensive stuff on those shows but..i can help but be a touch jealouse when they just "picked up" the 2000 dollars worth of hotchkis suspension goodies ive been dreaming about for years or they "went with" the 300 dollar ceramic coating on their headers that i decided i couldnt afford. i gotta get one of those shows. im sure all you guys have felt the same at one point or another.

Most situations don't see much difference in power with the swap, but smoothness and A/F mixture seem to improve.

I have to agree to the fullest! Everytime they start to discuss how lucky they are to be working in a shop with all that incredbile equipment, I ask myself why I dont have all that...and then I remember

Hopefully someday I will have half of what they've got!

I just saw it and they got it from a 406 with 9:1 compression, which was also very efficient...somewhere like 505 to 528 or something like that.
