Ported Throttle Body
LPE GT-19 cam
.678, .688 lift
Everything else is stock.
Got the above done while the heads were getting SS exhaust valves and bronze guides (WCCH). No porting on the heads.
All work done by 21st Century Muscle Cars in DFW. They are awesome to work with. A awesome shop and great guys.
Unfortunately, as I drove to the shop, the only gas station I found was a 7-11, so I filled my tank with their 93 octane. The tuner said it was giving him some trouble with the tune so if I run through a few tanks of my usual Shell 93, then he will tune it again and can probably pull a bit more power.
The cam is great. I drove 50 miles through stop and go traffic on my way home from the shop. I had no problems with surge whatsoever. I was driving at 55mph in 6th gear with no problem at all.
I wasn't able to get any room to give it a good pull but it felt strong when I could push it a bit.
The car shakes a bit and there's a bit of a chop but I kinda like it.
Here's the dyno:
That's plenty of power for me. My main concerned was to get the valves worked so I can finally stop thinking about that dang topic.
************** UPDATE ****************
I got rid of the gas and filled up with Shell 93. The tuner said he was able to apply a bit more timing today. Here's the dyno:
I know the dyno does SAE correction, but it was already 90 degrees in the shop and 60% humidity.
I am pleased that the gains were spread across most of the rpm range.
I have to give compliments to the 21st Century guys, especially Matt, for all their effort to get me the best possible tune.
