I wasn't looking to tell the man to make it sound nice, I'm not one of those all show no go, the fact and the matter is with certain performance cams that will have advances and benefits in timing their is going to be a different idle then stock and different run along with sound as I'm sure you know that. I didn't go into detail about the computer for one main reason and thats cause at this point we are all just talking about what can and can't be done, options pretty much. It would be pointless to make a book out of a suggestion but I do understand your point and it's a good one. Anyways I didn't have any intentions or anything to cause aspersions and cause rukas, I'm just trying to help the man every bit as you are. In all honesty I think it's pointless to do what he wants to do because the vehicle as it is has enough HP and torque, changing cams and heads will do nothing for him. The 360 and 318 head are the same their was just two different castings I don't remember the casting numbers off the top of my head but besides the point. Anyways regardless of A and LA engines from the past.
