Don't take the following as anything negative, but the main reason why imports (real racers, not ricers) are gaining everywhere, is due to exactly your approach. Why set an engine for noise/lope? In the days before imports, performance was the driving force....... regardless if they were not "track material" performance was......... sound and lope were an outcome, not a goal.

Are you taking the correct approach?..... nope. What about valve springs, valve train geometry, cam degreeing, lifters preload setting....... all are Engine 101 procedures required to be performed, and unfortunately overlooked..... since sound became more important than....... performance.

I think joel5.0 drove it home to the point I was getting at, so I won't waste time with a reply.........

Lul in the irony in this statement being directed to one of the most respected posters on 5.0l general.
