engine RPM range questions

engine RPM range questions

Postby markmitch [OP] » October 6th 2016, 12:55am

OK here is my series of questions: first thing I suck at math. My engine is a stock 1992 chevy 350 TBI from a chevy silverado. I swapped in a LT1 Cam from a Buick roadmaster and a set of vortec heads. Otherwise it is stock.My question is with this cam what is my power range as in at what RPM is my top end and my cruising RPM? Cam specs are as follows 205/207 duration @ 50*, .447/.459" lift, 117 Lobe Separation Angle
Rocker Arms: (10089648) 1.5:1 Stamped Steel. I am using a Vortec 4 barrel intake with adapter and TBI with police car injectors. Thanks Mark p:s if you need more info feel free to ask.

You are probably going to want a custom burned chip, and a dyno run will show you exactly where you stand.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore & go about your business.

Off idle to 5500 is the power. It would be happiest cruising 1700 on for mileage sake. Set the shift at 5 grand for best acceleration. :2:
