Is the 2500 stally large enough?

Hi, quick question.... What are your cam specs as your stally should really kick in atleast 500 rpm after the pwer starts to kick in.

i agree, and with the .540 lift it should be at least 236+ duration @ .050, if so i would want more like a 32-3500 stall. other than that i really dont understand the post, as it doesn't have a question, so to the OP what is it that you need to know

Thats all

The question was, what are your cam specs as my thoughts were that since your cam has .540" lift you will need a stall of around 3000 rpm to which will generally flare to 3500 rpm. Using a smaller stall will literally dump power in your transmission, fix this and it sounds like you are on a neat combination.

Cheers, you answered my question.

i'm sorry, i didn't mean i dont understand your question PRO 347, i was only agreeing with your question, i think we were saying the same thing.

the original post really didn't have a question and i really couldn't understand what he wanted to know that was all, but since i did quote your post i can see how you would have taken it the wrong way
