I gave the guy options.
he can keep more compression with a bigger cam or drop compression with a smaller cam. Maybe the guy doesn't really want to change the pistons.???
also made a recommendation with a 350 build that he would love. Because, if he puts small cam in a light car with a 4.11 gear and manual trans, then it will drive like a tow truck. When someone wants to jump off a bridge I try to convince them otherwise.
a 350 with a big cam and 4.11 gears with a manual is not my invention. It works for everyone.
