Thxs jim for the advise
I will try short shifting it next time. And me shifting at 6k was cause everyone here would tell me that my 8-71 would start making to much heat above that and wouldnt make power after that 6000rpm. Yes the cam in wrong and in the off season it will come out. Due to sequestration and 40% pay cut it will be awhile before i go back. Thxs again jim
