Roller cam Vs Solid Cam
I have to pull my motor out to fix a rear main oil leak. While the motor is out I am looking at a bigger cam. I have a Comp Cam 282S now, .495 lift with 232 duration. I am looking at the Comp Cam roller 294. The cam program says I would pick up 60 horsepower with this cam switch. That seems like a whole lot more that I though possible. Is the cam program off. It says with the solid cam I'm at 441 horsepower. The roller cam was right at 500 horsepower. What do you think?
The engine is a 388, flat top pistons, Edelbork RPM heads, Air Gap, 700 double pumper. I'm running a 5 speed so no worries about the converter issue.
