Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by
his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS!
Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to
this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and
felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1
This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal
(currently at the Dyno
The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in,"
actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be
over there by itself." Classic!
JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!

Dyno-Tuning the Draguar's 696 Horsepower Supercharged Small Block Chevy! - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep. 35
It's time for motor mayhem! On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited we head to
Westech Performance Group with Mike Finnegan to Dyno-tune a new engine for the
Draguar, the 1974 Jaguar XJ12 with a small-block Chevy under the hood that
he and Freiburger bought for $1,000 and installed a Supercharger onto in a parking lot during episode
7 of Roadkill. After the Supercharger
upgrade the guys road-tripped the dilapidated car from San Francisco to
Sacramento for a drag race. With the summertime air temps hovering around
113 degrees, the worn out 350 overheated and Freiburger only managed to run
a 15.30 ┬╝ mile ET at Sacramento Raceway.
Looking for redemption, Freiburger ordered a new 383ci long block from
Blueprint Engines, a definite upgrade over the old powerplant. Though the
new longblock is only rated to 600hp it features forged pistons and rods
and a forged crankshaft, which means that the guys can turn up the Boost and make double the power of the old
engine. The engine effortlessly made 650hp with 91 octane fuel in the tank
but Finnegan was feelin' froggy so he added 118 octane race fuel and upped
the Boost to 15 psi in an attempt to
make 700hp with the 383. Did the engine leave the Dyno shop in one piece? Check
out the video to see!
The engine we used is a BluePrint Engines' 383 Long Block designed for
