Edelbrock E Street with Hydraulic Roller Cam??? help please.
I just recently acquired a set of Edelbrock E street heads for a decent price. I currently have a competition cam Pt# 35-304-8 cam. Edelbrock states that with these heads you can only use a flat tappet cam.
I've been reading...
The lift on the e heads can't exceed 0.550" of lift. My cams are max 0.533" lift on intake and exhaust. I know, thats pushing it... I've read of cams with 0.510" lift breaking valve springs.
BUT theoretically, this should work.... Theoretically..
over on the corral.net there is a whole thread dedicated to those who have tried to run roller cams with the e-street heads.......in short, don't do it!! there's more to it than just max lift........ramp rates on roller cams often differ greatly to that of flat tappet crap......which is why more seat pressures are needed, also depends on the lobe profile used
