    So how long would a motor like that run before it got out of whack? Would you have to tune that thing daily or what?

    I don't know why everybody thinks an engine like that needs constant work, They don't! If the engine is MAINTAINED, like any other engine, they don't. I hardley ever worked on my race engines. adjusting valve lash? maybe check it now and then, roller cams don't wear! or they are not supposed to! If you got to keep adjusting "things" something is wrong!! The only thing I ever had to constantly adjust was the carb jets. Holley's are sensative to weather, and need mixture changes as the day/weather goes on. This is the GOOD thing about holley's. I was always baffeled by the people that would always be working on there engines at the track. I could see adjusting valve lash on a solid tappet engine, but really, the only time they should need adjustment is when something wears down!! Then maybe we should look for the reason IT'S WEARING!!
