Has anyone built a efi from Pro M along with CHI 3v (208) heads & intake.
Considering these components with custom solid roller cam.
Any advice welcome, thanks in advance,

Thanks to all who viewed. It doesn’t look like this combination has been attempted so I’ll continue with eyes open. Anything interesting I’ll post.
Thanks again.

I don't do a lot of EFI stuff, sorry.

Not sure on your application, but I would look hard at a hydraulic roller if it's a street driver. My hydraulic rollers will turn 7500 rpm and make excellent power.

When would you want to turn an engine with a hydraulic roller 7500 rpm?

Why not?

I have lots of street customers who want more power and rpm. It's not always prudent to go with a solid roller/flat tappet. LS/Gen3 Hemi guys do it, why can't the SBF/FE guys? Just takes the correct cam lobe and lifter setup. 7000 rpm peak, 7500 rpm shift. Easy.

i can't say that I have any street customers who have asked for a 7500rpm engine but ok.

Welcome to my world.

I've got at least 3 FE's that come to mind right off the bat, 7000-7500 with a hydraulic roller. All street cars.

Lots of guys want an engine that's between street and race. I don't see the need to take the risks running solid rollers when there are hydraulic rollers that will work and be more dependable.

I'd try to talk 'em into building a larger engine.

482-496 is pretty big.

This build doesn't have to be a solid roller, it does need to hold north of 6500 comfortably. Street driven but dependable. That's the reason for EFI. I will be in touch with Lykens Motorsport for internal items such as cam specs. I'm still doing research with CHI and Pro-M on top end components.
Thanks for the interest. I'll post as the build develops.
