Certainly not as much as BHRIFIC (his is over $140k!!) - heh heh heh - but I could have bought her new all over again. But then again, it's only money, right? :eek:

looking sharp!

however, getting rid of that NoSpeed 268 cam in favor of a Techtonics 266/270 with dual valve springs will give you even more midrange, and just a tad more grumblecakes.

You really need the dual springs anyways for anything over 260 though...
