Here's a couple of recent video's from my 11.1 to 1 NA, pump gas, TFS 235, hyd cam 427 that Erik built for me. I know the 60's suck but i'm working on it. 138 MPH in 90 degree heat aint so shabby.

Erik built me a 408 about a year ago and had gforce do the tuning. Pretty much the best builder in the US. Made 520 on engine and 6 something on a little shot through auto. Amazing engine, drove it all the way home to ok and got 25mpg at 90+mph all the way. Use hke and gforce and you will be very happy and run some serious 10s/9s with a baby shot.

Only engine we sell and drive in our personal cars. I can assist you or if your in talks with the man direct then do not hesitate to have him build your engine. We have a 9 sec combo we offer for a 3300 lb car, talk to him about it. LS2 460cid long block

Erik built our current NA iron block pump gas 408 that runs high 9s and he built us a NA 445 that ran 9.3s on pump gas. We are now having him bump our NA 455 up to a NA 460 pump gas set up that should be low low 9s on motor.

Yes he knows what he's doing.lol. He is the best in the business IMO.

This is the fastest LSx truck in the country right now isnt it?

I'll give another positive endorsement to Erik and HKE. He did all the machining and balancing work for my 383. Plus, got me the crank, rods, and valve springs at great prices. While I built my own motor, I can't say enough about this guy - he has great attention to detail and getting the best out of blueprinting a motor.

I just went 9.92@140 this weekend in the little pump gas 427 motor he built me. Now if I could only cut a real 60' the times would drop.

If you can't get a hold of him pm or call me. I distribute Eriks (racer7088 HKE)engines and can take care of what ever you need. I am easier to get a hold of :)

I expect he will be starting on mine within a month or two aswell... can't wait to get mine! To anyone thats looking for an engine I've yet to hear or read a bad thing about HKE, I'm looking forward to being yet another very satisfied customer!

I recommend that anyone looking for engine stuff talk to Chris at CCPerformance, great guy, very helpful and patient.:nod: He even puts up with my constant annoying phone calls.

hows he on specing out a good FI cam

What he came up with and what I came up with for mine was within 1 degree everywhere, so Id say hes equally as bad at that also. It works :D
