    If for racing why go with a stock cam? why not custom ground?

    You are still going to get spanked by the 08 ACR's and LS7's. Sure you want to dump the money into those old mares?

    thanks to a fellow owner I now have the info . In nz there are less than 20 Vipers so i am told and mine is the only one that is raced regulray , who cares if a new Acr comes along .and whips its behind good on the owner if he does . 3rd overall in NZ in the trans ams is not bad for a road car against space frame cars and these are real road / race events [ over 2000 miles of racing 50 plus races last year. ] . race on the weekend and get the groceries on Monday ,

    Congrats on being well up inthe racing standings. Living in New Zealand you may have to come to North America to see an '08 ACR. I wonder if they'll build more than 200?

    I think he meant LS9 and I wonder how many will be built. Since they're only 620hp (rated) it shouldn't take more than a 6.5# Roe sc to kick it's ass anyway.

    If your going to swap the cam go with a Crower stg 2. Its a little bit bigger than a stock 708.

    The 708 is a great all around camshaft. You can usualy get one for a couple of hundred too.

    if you go to Welcome To Rover V8 you will see my website and some of my previous race cars and history . I need the std cam info so i can then work out another cam for one of the engines , you need info before you can fit other parts , so apples can be checked with apples . also go to NZ Super Sedans - Home Page to see race results and reports , . One day i may be able to tell you the actuall power curves torque with a few different parts as tested on my bench dyno . [ do not hazzle me for the results however ] it all takes time and lots of it . I do not want to tweak the engine too much [ been there done that with other engines ] I am involved with a viper here in NZ that has 800 Bhp at 6000rpm at the flywheel and is normally aspirated.
