    Hi Mike...I see that you are running the 256 Voodoo cam, and I'm considering the same.
    My truck is a 75 Highboy, so a bit heavier than yours. I've got a 30 over 390 running aprox 9:1 compression (1130 pistons, 70cc C8ae heads) 600cfm 4 barrel, headers...4 speed manual.
    I occasionally tow a 5000lb boat with this truck so don't want to sacrifice any bottom end torque with too large of a cam...of course its nice to stab the skinny pedal once in a while but I rarely push past 4000 rpm. Looks like the 256 cam falls off at around 4k by your Dyno graphs.
    I'm on the fence between Comps XE256 or the voodoo 256...its seems Lunati has more lift which would lead me to believe they are harder on valvetrain and noisier. I see Lunati even has a smaller 250 cam which probably makes gobs of torque.
    Anyways..whats your opinion on the Lunati? How's the valvetrain noise? Street manners...good bottom end torque for towing?
    Should I even consider Lunati's 250 cam?
    Thanks for your time!

    Hey Mike, was looking for the thread where you had some pics of your new dash insert with gauges, can't seem to locate anywhere and was wanting to see how you did that...

    I read in a post you had set of headliner trim for sale. I'll take it if you still have it.
