Not bad for being new!
Thanks I appreciate the info, and I using 5.7 rods scat I beam rods, but I have a question if i was to go with a bigger cam Lift & duration, Could I make more HP & TQ, I just wanted to do HYD Roller for my first engine build, and try to get close to 550hp or better....

For example>>>>>>

565/585 lift duration @.050 244/252

575/590 lift duration @.050 248/254

585/585 lift duration @.050 248/248
