For street use I like the Voodoo cams due to the low recommended lash settings. Leads to a little more longevity.


based on acutall flow tests done on a 4.030 bore, my 200cc dart platinum heads (after some work) are putting out what the AFR 210 competition heads are in the .300-.600" range and acutally have better velocity numbers at the lower lifts than the AFR 210 Comp heads.

and i seriously doubt that i would be in the 575-600hp range, as neither of these heads is honestly that much better (if at all) than the ones that i have nor than a set of worked DART 215 pro 1 (new platinum series). i would likely have to change my compression to the 11-11.5:1 in order to see those numbers

having spent some time at the machine shop where i have my work done and seeing atleast a dozen or so motors run on a dyno, you learn that what you or others are going to make, very often is very different that what they actually do. i bet i have seen 4-5 383-406 motors come in where the builder or owner thought it should make 500-525hp and once it was run it really came out to be like 450-480hp.
