The heads are about 800.00 each i think they are trying to sell some stuff that someone else backed out on.From what i have read and the info i have gotten off of this site, the combo they have would be pretty wild. They said to use the flat top 5 cc pistons dart heads 5.7 rods and a custom roller with about 580 lift and 240-250@.050. Edelbrock RPM Airgap 750 HP carb.I don't remember the exact cam specs they told me i will call them back tomorrow. Kinda limited on machine shops unless i travel about a hundread miles we only have one that does performance type work local.

those are moderate parts.If you want a mild engine use a small solid roller or hydraulic roller,some 190 ish heads,the 750 and air gap is a good choice.1 5/8 or 1 3/4 tube headers.9.8 ish CR

From what i have read and been told the combo they have for sale would be about 11.1 and may work with that cam, but i want street manners not drag strip. I will get the specs on what they have tomorrow.

There's probably some wiggle room in these figures, but most of us agree that 9.5 on iron heads and 10.5 on alloy heads is a good limit for use with pump gas. Under this present socialist administration, look for the Fed to get tougher with fuel. They're pushing E15 right now and nobody wants it.
Warnings Not to Use
If I were building a street motor today, I'd have to think long and hard about what fuels will be available at the pump to fuel it.....
