I hate to sound like a leg humper, but I run one of Ed's cams, and just today I made three consecutive 9 second passes, got my last time slip, drove out the gate, onto the highway and 60 miles back home. This is with a glide, 3.08 gears, mostly 93 octane pump gas (spiked with a little 116 for safety), and at 3,350 lbs. I even got caught in a traffic jam on the ride home. Ed's cams certainly work well. BTW - I run hand ported TW 170 heads (opened up to ~185 cc's).
'84 LTD LX - 9.83 at 140.09. Whippled 365 SBF with a glide and 3.08 gears. Driven to and from the track 60 miles without even changing tire pressure.
