The greater duration is what will cause problems in the map low down more than anything as well. Running any of the 14mm lift cam kits without custom pistons isn't advised by schrick with or without vanos because its impossible to get the most out of them and you risk smashing valves.
Engine is fully built with high comp pistons. Just waiting for the right smg softwarer to enable running higher rpm.. might not be 304's i remember they were higher than 288s tho?

Do you have any more info on your titanium valve train? I take it you mean rockers and springs not valves?
Valves have also been done

I am running 280/288 spec I believe I’ll have to check paper work I think there similar or same spec to csl cams not sure though.

My mapper/engine builder were trying to get me to convert to manual and fit a standalone syvecs ecu. I didn’t due cost going higher and higher lol

But I will in the future..

My idle is slightly higher just sitting below 1k, the Rev limit has not increased

There is no reason to go stand alone really if you are just doing the basics like supercharging. The MSS54 is a very good DME, you just need the right person to map it.

Can you remember what power you got with what boost pressure? I am just trying to determine whether its worth camming a supercharged s54 or not....

I think the reason for stand alone management is to be able to run high lift cams with the smg.

As the SMG software has parametres for the biting point and rev limits etc, after market software is the expensive but only way ive heard of to be able to utilise the higher revving cams..

Even with an aftermarket ecu i believe mapping the smg to run big cams has never been done effectively,, slightly off topic but id love to be corrected?
