NSX thanks that graph looks awesome makes the motor look like it has so much more potential. The car was built to be a "fast street car with the intent to drag race." I had an engine builder pick the cam..When I tell poeple the cam specs I always hear that something is not so great about it. So it was no suprise you said so. We tried to keep it "streetable" I guess. At this point I'm just going to build the fast setup and forget great streetablilty. here are the flow #'s of the canfields I have on it now.

VALVE LIFT .100 .200 .300 .400 .500 .600 .700
Intake Port 71.7 144.9 206.4 252.4 288.0 301.7 306.1
Exhaust Port* 52.2 104.9 146.2 184.0 203.2 219.2 227.2

To those who think my story sounds fishy Im sorry. I'm just a 21 yr old trying to get a good combo together. I for some reason have faith in the chevy 400 block. If I break the block I'll live and buy another one if needed. I have a truck and bike I drive during nice weather as well so if something happens to the car mechanically I'm not all that screwed. Basically I'm willing to push the limits of a stock block. I know it may not make sense to everyone but that why we are all different. Atleast I put ARP studs in it and good pieces. I had the motor in the car 2 years. I now have 6 grand to spend on it. I have been saving up money from working all spring/summer/fall so its time to put that $ into the car. I live at home I can afford to do things like this now. So in some way shape or form I'm trying to get more HP than what I do now. Be it adding a blower, going bigblock, or whatever..I'm just trying to weigh my options.
