I understand a solid roller cam will get me more hp and torque, But HYD Roller is that way i'm going. I alread paid for everything I can't really turn back now. Maybe I just need a bigger cam with good duration,What do u think??????
On those AFR heads its a good idea to check the chamber for CC volume as the last set was suppose to be 65 CC and when chacked they were 67.5 CC

On the OEM blocks its a good idea to sonic test for cylinder wall thickness.

Also why are the putting the caps on last as every thing measures of the main.

If your looking at 600 horse it would be a good idea to go to a splayed cap.

If your looking for good ring seal have it plate honed.
