My general philosophy is 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'  Smiley
Couldn't agree more, hopefully I can get up there to watch it run sometime. I may be bringing up the two youngest ones for Christmas to my parent's house, but there isn't anything going on at the track that time of year up there...

Yes, Duane said there is definitely more power available with a cam swap, and he did make a recommendation.  When we decide to make the swap, we know which one we're going to get  Naughty  .

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

I said TFS, not AFR. I'm not fan of Canfield, seen too many of them crack over the years.

Those TFS that you are talking about might have less shock-tower clearance than her Canfields, I'm not sure?
