6.1 hemi cam/heads and clutch suggestions for T56 magnum
« on: October 17, 2015 - 12:45:39 pm »
Going to be pulling the drivetrain soon to check the trains, and may add a cam and heads so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Just for anyone who may be interested, I had my heads ported by Thiteck heads, I bought a high horse performance stage 2R cam and got a McLeod RST twin disc clutch hopefully I will get it back together soon and let people know how she goes.

I would have suggested that clutch but I guess I missed this thread .
 Interesting to see how the cam changes things for you  :2thumbs:

Hey Chryco I may be swapping out that cam for a blower cam instead since I have kinda been looking at different super chargers

No I was running the stock cam until I just pulled the drivetrain. I may hold off on the blower cam and just the stage 2r cam even if I get a blower next year........I guess.         
Per the cam guys I'll only lose about 10 to 15 horse by not going to the blower cam.

Hey Goody I've been running the Reilys altercation. So far so good
