I have this camgear at the moment
Just wondering should I swap that one for alloy one.
300bhb is awesome number from NA 3.0 Essex engine with those mods.If you rise compression ratio in Essex engine new forged rods are absolute must.
Like you have done in your case I assume, little bit longer rods and shorter pistons to rise compression ratio. In my case this car is for street drive use, so not going to use straight cut gearbox. I have MT-75 V6 hybrid that should be capable handling some power and torque with narrow tires (205F/225R wide tires) Extra power goes to smoke and thats fine with me. I have 3.09 rear axle ratio and balances nicely that 500-600nm torque to road, with quite less smoke than higher rear axle ratio. I don't know how much stock 2.8 V6 engine block can take but so far no problems. We will see if I get my new spare engine running in next winter looking for around 500/700 power flywheel output power from it.

Vermilion you want 500-700 Hp? that is a lot for a 2.8 Cologne, i'm not sure the block will take it, certainly i don't think anybody has gotten that much from a 2.8 Cologne ever...

675,07 nm torque.
We didnt even test at what ignition advance engine would detonate, we played safe. The one who tuned charts said that maybe 3-5 more iginition advance would have been possible but I fear for my old cast iron pistons that they won't even take a one detonation.
