keys to making this work.
Finished compression ratio. (10:1 or as close as possible to it) Head milling. piston choice, gasket choice
head port flow (220++intake 160+ex cfm @28") generous real effort complete home porting+ larger 1.94" intake valve ans a good valve job) use a felpro 1205 as a guide and get serious with the die grinder, especially on the roof of the port and around the guide in the bowl. you need at least 1 long shaft carbide burr to get deep in the intake port.
cam (the cam yu got is good)
valve springs ( so it can rev)
RPM hi rise dual plane intake (power)
gears (5.57 is just right for a 35" tire for this buggy)
converter 9" 10" 3000+ actual stall (3500+ advertized stall)
headers with a collector (power and torque)
