306 build questions

I have 99% of my engine parts, just waiting on a Summit order, and then it's assembly time. Just a few questions.

This is my combo:
'88 306 roller block
SP forged flat tops (10:1 w/ 58cc chambers)
World Windsor Jr. 180cc heads, 58cc chambers (1.96" in / 1.60" ex valves )
Comp XE282 cam (.565 /.574 lift, 230 / 240 @ 0.05 duration. 2500-6700rpm)
Weiand stealth intake (1500 - 6500rpm)
600 cfm Holley DP
MSD pro billet / 6AL

I was told by my a few people that they think the intake and carb wont be able to keep up with the head/cam. I've heard great things about the Stealth intake, and read up on it before deciding on it. I was hoping with it's 1500 - 6500 operating range would give it a touch more bottom end on the street, but still perform well at the track since I don't plan on spinning much past 65-6600 rpm. Also, some people say I don't have enough carb, others say it shouldn't hold me back much.

Should this combo work OK, or should I not bother and upgrade now instead of later?

Also, what kind of HP should I expect from this. This is going into a Ford Pinto.


Mr. Pinto

I would go with better heads actaully- incase you decide to change your intake later to something more performance oriented. The rest looks fine for a mild street combo though.
