Hyd roller vs Hyd flat tappet for sbc
Been reading like crazy the past month and thought I've decided on lunati's "268" cam "Basic Operating RPM Range:1,800-6,200
Intake Duration at 050 inch Lift:227
Exhaust Duration at 050 inch Lift:233
Duration at 050 inch Lift:227 int./233 exh.
Advertised Intake Duration:268
Advertised Exhaust Duration:276
Advertised Duration:268 int./276 exh.
Intake Valve Lift with Factory Rocker Arm Ratio:0.489 in.
Exhaust Valve Lift with Factory Rocker Arm Ratio:0.504 in.
Valve Lift with Factory Rocker Arm Ratio:0.489 int./0.504 exh.
Lobe Separation (degrees):110" but I have the opportunity now to pick up comps "276" Hyd roller Basic Operating RPM Range
Intake Duration at 050 inch Lift

224 int./230 exh.

My goal is to run high 12's (12.99999 is ok with me) my platform is a 64 chevelle SS with a gm goodwrench 350 stock bottom end eddy performer rpm heads rpm intake Holley 750 vac secondaries backed by a th350 with a shift kit 2k ish stall 3:73 12 bolt posi. I would like to keep the p/b
What do you guys think about the cam choices? Am I totally off base here for my application?
What is the static compression ratio of the motor?
Hey tech inspector I've read a lot of your posts and was hoping you'd chime in, I'm fairly new to this but using a couple calculators online I was getting a DR and SR in the mid 5's with the 64cc heads .38 gasket stock deck and piston volume and using the 39.5 ABDC from lunati's cam card... I hope I'm making a mistake because that doesn't sound right to me...
4.00" Bore X 3.48 Stroke.
64cc Head, 4VR 3.160" X .080" 13cc Dish Piston.
.025" Deck Ht., .038" Gasket, .063" Quench. = 8.97Cr
With .028" Gasket, .053 Quench = 9.15Cr
This is the usual Piston used in several GM Crates.
Thanks SSedan now that ive gotten some sleep and have some coffee on board I noticed on my numbers I was missing a "0" in front of my .38 headgasket haha
A motor with 9.00:1 SCR will make good cylinder pressure with a cam that closes the intake at somewhere between.....
15 degrees ABDC @0.050" tappet lift = 8.62:1 DCR
20 degrees ABDC @0.050" tappet lift = 8.48:1 DCR
25 degrees ABDC @0.050" tappet lift = 8.32:1 DCR
30 degrees ABDC @0.050" tappet lift = 8.14:1 DCR
35 degrees ABDC @0.050" tappet lift = 7.93:1 DCR
A cam that closes the intake at 39.5 degrees ABDC @0.050" tappet lift would work this way with these static compression ratios....
10.00:1 SCR, 8.58:1 DCR
9.80:1 SCR, 8.41:1 DCR
9.60:1 SCR, 8.24:1 DCR
9.40:1 SCR, 8.07:1 DCR
9.20:1 SCR, 7.90:1 DCR
SJSS, let me help you a little with numbers....
.38 is three hundred and eighty thousandths, or about 3/8ths of an inch.
.038 is thirty eight thousandths of an inch.
.0038 is thirty eight ten thousandths of an inch
To be technically correct, you need to put a zero in front of the decimal point if there is no whole number involved, like this....
0.038" thirty eight thousandths of an inch
