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

check with (camgrinder) here on this site. he grinds awsome custom grinds to fit your combination.
That is my first choice!!! should have said that in my post. He helped me out on an issue with a comp hyd roller and lash settings. Proved to be the magic trick.

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.

I'm using an Isky S645 solid flat [email protected]/.585" on 108°. It's still on the engine stand so I don't have any power numbers yet. This will be my first non-roller cammed engine in many years, being a budget build.
