I didn't have time to go through the entire thread, but I immediately noticed that the duration used for the calc was the wrong duration.

The only way to figure DCR is by using the duration where the intake valve is effectively closed, which is the "seat-to-seat" duration, AKA, "advertised" duration. Comp Cams uses duration at .015" valve lift, and sometimes .012 amd .010 as well. This is known in the SAE as J604d duration, which is duration at .006" valve lift.

Was this ever addressed in the thread?
No idea why it landed in the dump, I started it, and wasn't offended, or offending anyone I don't think, course I do ask some stupid questions occasionally....but I was actually learning something sifting through it all.....ah well. Its not my sandbox.....
