Why hydraulic roller? Have you considered a solid flat tappet?

How much stall?
How much gear?
Any port work in the heads or intake?
How much/which carb?

So are they the CNC ported versions?

Here's a rough Idea.
Hydraulic roller
http://www.lunatipower.com/Product.aspx?id=1989&gid=289
282/290
231/239
.535/.550
110/106
# RPM Range: 2400-6200

Solid flat tappet (same if not a little better power and SUBSTANTIALLY cheaper!!)
Lunati part #60142
278 / 286
249 / 257
.540” / .560”
110 / 106
2800-7000
RPM range: 2800 - 7000

Or for a little more grunt:
Lunati part #60143
286 / 294
257 / 265
.560” / .580”
110 / 106
3000-7200

For further information you can contact the cam designer himself. Harold Brookshire's # 662-562-4933

john the (camgrinder) worked with my engine builder to design a cam for my california smog 383 motor. awsome motor dyno at 427 hp and 441 tq. have since added a 1 in. spacer which should bump up to numbers. note: numbers are at the flywheel. went to the track for my first time ever last weekend. first pass was the best at 12.9's @ 109 mph. this with a 3650 weight car and a tko 500 with 3.23 rear gear. with good driver should go low 12's.

I am running that Comp XE288HR in my 383.
So far I am pretty happy with it.
I did not get the comp springs and I think that is proving to be an error, which I have not yet fixed.

Very strong up to 5,500.

I am hoping that with the new springs, 6,000-6,200 will be the norm.
