Mopar Muscle tech meister Steve Dulcich talked us into using the EngleKV-1 solid cam and lifter set. We're glad we listened. Despite its wildspecs (see Recipe List), it has good street manners and is a perfectcomplement to the test car's 3,000-pound race weight, 3.55 axle ratio,9.2:1 compression ratio, and 2,700-rpm stall speed. We installed it 2degrees advanced after drilling the cam-gear dowel hole from 0.250 to0.270 and installing a 0.020 shim (flattened coat hanger) to re-indexthe gear on the cam snout. The single-roller timing chain and steelgearset is cheap but effective. Double roller alternatives are availablebut offer no benefit at this level of performance. By all means, avoidplastic-coated cam gears, as they tend to shed teeth with severe use.
