... but My lce header was again all top end power...

This is what I have read about from the guys who have run the LCE header - that is seems to move the HP number up in the RPM range, and that it is weaker on the lower RPM range for torque, compared to the tri-y DT?   

Since I've only run the DT headers on my 2 other 22s, I'll try the LCE header just to get some idea, but with a rebuild, 261C cam profile and OS valves, I will not have anything to compare it to directly.  Once I get the engine broken in, tuned, and replenish my Toy piggy bank, I'm going to take it in to Chuck's Speed Center in Phoenix, and have them chassis dyno it.  If I could easily and with a donation from Doug Thorley, I'd switch the header and run another test with the DT header. 

I am going to call Doug Thorley on Monday am and see if anyone will talk to me about any dyno testing they'v done.

I may still do another dyno test with a different cam since I'll have a really fresh engine.
