I would like to get about 350 hp out of the new engine and run in the 13s. Is this possible with my combination? Your crate 350 should be okay for use with a TPI system. We recommend checking the engine’s camshaft specifications. Most “computer-friendly” cam profiles are no bigger than 214-222 degrees duration at .050 and .450-.460 inches of lift with 112-116 degrees of lobe separation. If the cam in the new 350 is much over these figures, you should consider a different camshaft to ensure compatibility with the IROC’s computer.
