WEll got her dialed in ,in just 2 trips to the track 71,with a 355 ,patriot heads, 294/306 comp cams, 410 gears with 28" tall tires ,all street trim,the first time i went i have a regular fan with no cut outs and went a best 12.30 at a pinks all out here in louisiana,so i put an electric fan,and cut outs and drove 50 miles to the track and went 11.75 @114 mph so that was a big difference and even has power steering

That a huge improvement for just those changes. Was the tune and everything else the same? What exhaust are you running?

In any case, that's a good running 355. Congratulations!!

What were the incrementals on your times?

Wow those are big headers for the combo! What is the runner cc on the patriots? I am running hooker 1 5/8" headers through 2 1/2" with an x pipe and super 40 flowmasters. The cam was ground on a 108 and installed on 104 so I should be shifting around 6000-6200 I would imagine! The cam was ground by Camgrinder on here, if you ever want to change get ahold of him he really nows his stuff!:yes:

Those are some big heads too! Your heads and headers are alot bigger then mine, must have something to do with why it picked up so much uncorked. My heads are 170cc so I may not runn quite those numbers , anything around 12.20 or better and I will be stoked!:yes:
