Numbers Game: This Awesome Chart From COMP Cams Compares Valvetrain Life Cycles In Different Applications

Hot rodding is a numbers game, right? Whether we are talking horsepower, drag strip numbers, heck, even the price of parts. Numbers rule our lives when it comes to cars. But there are some numbers we don’t really think about. The aggregate numbers of the automotive world run an amazing gamut. This is especially true when we take different and very specific applications of engines. How does something with a short wick, like an NHRA pro stock engine compare with something that is designed to run literally forever in the nose of a big rig.

Billy Godbold at COMP Cams has done just that and this is the neatest thing that you’ll see all day.

Billy is a cam designer who is well known and respected in basically every form of racing and by loads and loads of the best engine builders in the world. The categories down here are pretty self explanatory there’s one that needs some clarification. The “Spinal Tap Type” is looking at an 11,000 RPM LS engine build that he worked on recently.
