no slip from that run, old airport drags, on real tires with traction the car would have gone low low 11's maybe high 10's mph supports that pretty well.

u know u may know a whole lot , but u dont know everything, plenty of boosted cars running these heads well into the 10's/11's without trying to hard on both turbo forums and third gen. for a super cheap budget build they have been proven to make good power with turbos plain and simple

fellow fbody guy with a l98 tpi engine that has been featured in a few magazines has gone low 10's with those heads untouched @ 14/15psi and the 882's are just about even, they do flow better but have crappier chambers.


this aint my first rodeo ive built my fair share of turbo cars

and btw my 3.1L v6 with heads that only flow 125cfm broke 330wheel hp and 420wheel ftlbs @9 psi explain that one
3.1 makes 140hp flywheel stock

grand national heads flow about the same and they routinley make 5-600 hp

Project89 drove the car around a lil more today, had one of my fans stop working so i pulle dover on the side of the road to see what was sup since the engine was getting up around 190* and i ende dup having to push the car backwards to pull out cause somone parked infront of me.

lol really need to get that shifter cable and install it, right now i have the trans stuck in drive so i can atleast drive it around to tune it.

overdrive is a waste below 60/65mph car surges real bad ive tried more timing and less timing and nothing helps , might try adding in some more fuel right now im setup for a lean cruise around 15.5-16.2 afrs

other then that this cam seems to be working well

should work even better if i put the single plane intake and lsx 90mm throttle body, the only reason i havent yet is because the ports are 1206/slightly larger on the single plane heads are much smaller

Project89 well the ole butt dyno says not to bad
spoolup is a tad bit lazy in first gear, but thats actually a good thing in my case, before this thing woudl blow the rear tires right off , now it has a chance to grab some traction at lower rpms

its still pulling pretty damn hard once its in full boost

old cam ='s full boost at 2,800
new cam ='s full boost at 3,600

have some slight low rpm cruise issues to sort out , but im also running a very tight converter right now till i get my 4l80 back

soon as i get a new shifter cable installed on tuesday ill deff get some driving vids posted up

Project89 got the laptop out and bumped idle timing back to 30* it idles better now , have to change my iac settings though as this cam drives it a lil crazy trying to hold a steady idle.

right now its setup to hold a 850rpm idle , im going to change it so its only active on cold starts once the motor reaches 140* ill have the iac fully close and ill set idle speed witht he adjusting screw on the tb

Project89 funny u say that since the car went 11.83@ 132 with a ton of tire spin @ 15 psi witht he summit cam and 882 heads

F-BIRD'88 You will be much further ahead by concentrating less on what giuy over on this that board is doing or BSing about and work on your own car. There is lots of BS on the boards Especially when it comes to dynos and HP. NO buddy makes 1000 HP with 882 heads. What is it 60psi of boost? and 3 bottle of nitrous oxide?
All you will do is create boost (back pressure) as the air cannot get in or out of the motor with 882 heads on it.
They flow like **** even when fully ported. 100hp less than a camel back or stock vortec or simple entry level perf head on a simple N/A street motor. Give your head a shake. All the blower boost in the world won;t fix a bad cylinder head.

i wouldnt say no power with those heads , i know somone with a dragster that runs a sbc 355 with 882's and twin turbos and made over 1000hp on an engine dyno granted this was on methanol and not gas


only thing stoping me form fabing my own runners is the fact i dont have a tig machine capable of welding aluminum right now, otherwise i would have finished the lt1 intake or fabricated new runners for the tpi.

guy over on tgo actually has a nice thread on his fabricated shorter/larger diamiter tpi runners and it didnt cost to much, and they worked great

Get a short runner or siamese the TPI. Same with restrictive truck heads with small valves.
A big cam is a mismatch.
Turbo cams do not have a street machine idle.

You could be making a lot more power with less boost. Most of your gauge boost is pure head and intake passage restriction.

i do have a semi converted lt1 intake, i need to finish the welding on it to use it, that intake would deff be better but has its own airflow issues


im not using small valve truck heads on mine though the 882's arent much better they are atleast better, the head shave been cleaned up , and the tpi is ported but im not going to drop 400 bucks on a set of runners to siamess them

Wide LSA with less ex duration say 280/230-480" intake 268/222 ..464" exhaust exhaust 115 lsa.
Basicly a turbo cam version of the comp 280 magnum cam.

the 234-244 112 cam is a roots supercharger cam.
from previous twin turbo builds with the tpi intake, the best cams for power would be the summit 224/224 or the comp 268, both of these cams have pushed tpi toped turbo engines well into the 9's and just into the 8's


i know what would be ideal for this motor, and that summit 224 cam was awsome but like i said im willing to trade off some power for sound, i wont be racing the car enough to worry about squeezing every last bit of hp out of it

on a build with small valve truck heads and only a port matched tpi intake on a .40 over 350 that cam (224/224) made almost 700rwhp on 23psi from twin gn turbos. way more then i really need, i could literally give up 100-150 hp and not really care as long as driveability dosent suffer a whole lot


power numbers arent as important to me at the moment, more along the lines of if it will drive ok with the cam

this engine is an experiment for me as ive never had to tune anything at the altitude i am at 6,500ft above seal level. compared to being 0-200ft below is what im used to.

once im comfortable the altitude wont give me any headaches tuning i will be building an 227 afr headed 434 sb , with a single plane efi manfold for the real engine , paired with a set of gt3582r's or a pair of p trimed 66mm turbos

on this engine having everything perfectly matched will be much more of a priority

few guys on ttf.com have been able to run some pretty wild tight lsa cams without very many issues so i figure this cam being a good bit tamer might actually just work out pretty good. if not i have the option to reinstall the summit 224 or maybe even try out the sum 234/234
Going bigger on the am will not help things, nor will a reverse split.

To run a bigger cam using the parts you have first start with a good turbo header system, and then look into increasing the exhaust housing size. With more overlap exhaust reversion becomes a huge issue a well built header and proper exhaust housing size can greatly eliminate a lot of that.
