Looks like I may have found a motor, a 340 stroked to 416. It currently has a big solid lifter cam that makes the engine real choppy. I'm having the guy put a short duration cam in that will tame this thing down and get me more to a lopey instead of choppy idle.
This is going to be used mostly on the street, I would like to go to the strip for the occasional Friday Night Test & Tune.
What are the big differences between solid and hydraulic, will I need to be adjusting valves all the time?
How hard is it to make the adjustments.
Is there a cost difference if I ask him to take me from solid to hydraulic?
Please forgive my ignorance on this stuff, I'm just starting to learn about this stuff. The learning curve is pretty steep for me......
