Re: 502 crate motor recommended upgrades.

been running a 502 for 3 years but its a marine motor roller cam and rockers stay below 10.2 to 1 watch running it lean they dont like it I have played with timing 35degrees was the sweet spot but I am running a lot of lift so smaller cam with more duration will take 36 no mid grade gas my 2 cents
