Like the title says gentlemen... has anybody tried the HV porting on a 6.0L head. I realize that there are certain limiting factors to what the 6.0L can withstand....... Or should I say does anybody wanna "LOAN" a head for me to HV port and send back to you. I am amazed at the increase in CFM due to HV porting...I have many years experience...

Of course this HV porting would intel reshaping the intake and exhaust runners as needed. Possible drivability issues due exhist due to the likelyhood of reshaping the intake and exhaust ports.... BTW....:psnb:

Anybody know what the highest lift cam made for the 6.0L is? The reason I ask is because you don't wanna flow a head at 600 valve lift if there's not a cam to support it.

We actually sell a cam by Colt Cams the stage two is what I run in my race/street truck and I too have ported and polished heads...If we can get enough people to sign up for a billet cam we can have those made more aggressively

How much you wanna spend? Not really sure at the moment. I know i can get a LOT of cfm out one of these heads. I'm having a hard time finding info on cam lift. If i say i can get x amount of cfm and make x hp people will expect to make x hp. But... if i get x cfm at 700 lift and nobody makes a cam with a 700 valve lift then i can't deliver the product i was advertising.

I'm beginning to think that the aftermarket cams are just snakeoil... nobody knows the damn lift of one. If it's a one off or a custom cam specifically for one shop to accent their head porting etc. i could understand. But i'm talking about a mass produced cam that nobody has valve lift numbers on.

I managed to find a lift and duration of the RCD cam. .370 lift 182/192 duration.

How much more lift can one cram inside a 6.0L?

I went back and looked and found the Elite specs for their billet cams. I seen that thewe 471 lift cam requires a .080 valve releaf to be cut. I wonder if a 500 or 520 lift cam would be possible.
