Speaking to Crower himself was a cool thing. That was for another project tho.

I will get some things together and make a few phone calls and see what I can get together for you. V10 2V PI cams, Springs, and retainers. Since you will be changing the springs and retainers I can go more aggressive with the lift, duration, and ramp rates. I will also play around with the lob seperation angle and overlap to configure the powerband as best I could while keeping the nitrous in mind(Those usually dont go together lol).

I dont know yet. I have to see who can give the best deal on springs and retainers and see how much the cams will be. I'll shoot you a PM after I know more. I mainly deal with 4 Valve motors so the pricing will be quite a bit different.

Well if anyone is going to put a V10 through its paces it is definitively you.

Heads will get pulled to be ported soon. If everything goes as planned we'll have dyno results before and after. I'll keep posting as progress continues.

Cory aka Ironhand03 is great to deal with. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what he can do with his V10 also.
