Chris, it was the JAG rear (ERA car). His motor was dynoed by the engine builder at 430hp. I usually use 8% drivetrain loss for a manual with a live axle, so I used a 10% guess for the IRS. That gave me 387rwhp. His first pull was 388 . So he's got exactly 10% drivetrain loss. I still felt 430 hp wasn't a lot for the money spent on the motor. I guess I'll stick with the SCAT setup. I've been told all the power is in the heads. I think I am going to wait and see how the new Blue Thunder heads work, I'm sure they will rock as most of BTs stuff does. I'll probably get the cam setup from you guys and use the specs you suggest. Thanks!

Oh, and is there any kind of "template" available for how you have to cut the Lakewood bellhousing?
