Gav, your crower cam did it need valve cut outs in the pistons?

pits what was the price of the stealth?

£140 ish, if I remember correctly.
The Crower 50233 / 50234 have both over 0.5 inch lift.
I dont think this will go without piston pockets.

My 232 didn't no. To be honest though i didn't check as Allan said it wouldn't.

Nothings hit yet though so must be ok!

It has a wicked kick to it at 3k, enough to get the wheels spinning in second when it goes for it so the higher up cams must be even more mental!

Gav does it have a kick at 3k because it starts making real power or because its crap below 3k?

Well it was wicked below 3k too but i'm not sure if that was partly due to my itb's at that time but i had NO complaints about it anywhere in the rev range as it would pull smartly and strongly upto 3k then go for it above that!

Nope not pocketed. I'm using standard lifters as i wouldn't trust my pistons past 6k so i thought standard ones might pump up after that for a bit of insurance. Plus they're cheeeeep like the budgie. . . .

Myself and Neil at Caprisport are going to possibly build a high comp 4.6,
but going to do that over period of this year and the winter,
so we are going to freshen up Neils old 3.9 track day engine (that i own now and used for past 3 yrs) for now for some fun,
we have some stg2 heads, just need to sort a cam now thus why not wanting the pocket piston prob, as want to spend most my money on doing a new engine now,

Sounds like a plan!

The 4.6 thing is exactly what i'm doing just with the tvr heads and the most mental cam i can get away with. Sod all this driveability rubbish!
