Horse power will be my by product. Torque is what I need in this combo. Horse power is a result of rpm and torque. If I keep a lower rpm I cam make more torque. Now im saying I wont be reving much over 5 even when it was stock I reved it to 6500 rpm and hit 8ooo once. I got csared, blew my trans. Im not planing on going much over 5 but It probably will. Im trying to get gobs of torque at a reasonable price and make it reliable and sound good.

I can get them for free my friend bought new heads so im just asking if there better than what I have. Its a free head. With new springs and a port job will they be any better than my current heads for the application. It will help lower my compression to estimated 10.6:1. Which means possable sunoco 93

I allredy have dome pistons in the bottom end .275 dome. +14cc dome. I would still be +8 cc over a stock 64cc with flat top. Thats the reason for thinking of goin with the 72cc. And they have to be better than 193 heads. I dont have 1400 to spend on new heads right now. So back to my question. 882 or 193? I will later be upgrading them but im currently on a budget. I have 350 set aside for cam lifters n springs. I have put to much into the bottom end to splurge on the rest and I must have this running by newyears. So for the next year. What am I better off with.

IF- and that's a big if- you can expertly port the heads, use the swirl ports and hope for the best. The 883s are just not worth putting any time into IMO.

The problem here is you're asking what's better, a broken left leg or right leg. Neither are worth a timker's damn and using such a large domed piston isn't your friend, either.

If you insist on building this, as least avail yourself of the available info on quench and things to check in the valve train, including the geometry.

Also read up on cam break in procedures and setting up the distributor's advance curve.

Good luck. As the saying goes, you are gonna need it...

I didnt relise that was a tag. My phone hylights random sentences if there is another forum about it. 600 for a pair ofxaluminum proformer heaes is good price. My only question is how cheap is the qluminum he is using. They look real thin. But I supose thats all questions for him. And with me. I dont mind running race gas. I wont be driving this vehicle much. Its a play toy. Maybe 100 miles a month if im lucky.

It was getting 4mpg b4 I pulled the stock engin. It had 308 rears in it plus the od trans I was lugging and bogging everywhere. Ill probably get 10 now.

keep ignoring this thread,but I have to ask,,,why would you build a whimpy motor to run on race gas?700 horse power can be done with a small block and pump gas almost 1000 with a big block,all normally aspirated. 240 horse power v-8 that needs race gas is rediculous.

build a big engine and or long stroke engine for torque
