Looks real good. Those are all top notch parts and I am sure she is going to scream.

But if this is a track car, what have you done to address the following?
  • Brakes
  • Tires/Wheels
  • Suspension
  • Heat mitigation (radiator, oil cooler)
  • Oiling system (dry sump tank insert and oil pan baffle)
  • Aero
  • How to put E85 in your tank when the track doesn't have E85. 91 octane isn't going to cut it at 13:1
  • Safety (harness, harness bar etc)

With 13:1 compression, can you even drive it on the street with just California gas?

The BTR 3 will make good power but fall off quick. It's a great cam, just surprised you weren't going custom with this type of build.

I would talk to Cam Motion before Tony, but that's just my opinion.

Get rid of those absolute garbage Pfadt Mounts. Mine had melted on my C5 after 10k miles.

Isn't the zr1 pump pwm? So how do you control it since the Z06 ecu doesn't have the control built in?

Hope the build goes well and you get the results you're looking for!!

Tony Mamo put together a nice package for me for road racing if that's the Tony you are talking about. Makes decent power and makes it when it's supposed to over a broad RPM range. He specified the cam in it. Quite frankly I have never seen a better, flatter torque curve which works pretty well for road racing. I have only seen more ( a lot more) from the HPR 468 which is a beast.

If he's helping you it will work great if a road racing track car is your intended purpose.

My Pfadt engine mounts were melted and deformed so that the motor was basically laying on the orange pedestals.

I replaced them with OEM mounts protected by heat shielding. They have been good for many miles since. I have headers and bolt ons, and I drive the car hard.

Many people here will tell you not to put them on because they have experiences of them bursting. However, this is because no one takes the time to protect the OEM type mount when they add headers and increase proximity to heat.

Sure you could go with a hinson or AMT which is virtually solid and solve the problem, but I dislike the NVH, so I decided not to use them. To each their own.
