Thanks a lot for the info everyone. Think I'll be going with a setup that runs the 10:1 "starting line ratio" for gears/trans. I definitely want a mild/slight performance roller cam(I'm looking for power in the 1600-6000 rpm range) with 1.6 rockers on intake at least; probably 6" rods. 9.5 CR with a typical 0.035-.045 squish seems to be my ticket for what I want.

I'm not too keen on heads and I will be changing them, a suggestion for 195-200 cc intake runner range was made and I'm not sure what valve size to go with either...I'm looking into a 750 cfm carb and I know this depends on the combustion chamber/piston size too.

I have a better idea what to get with the other components in terms of a kit, but I am a little concerned about piston weight/balancing, etc. when it comes to forged and "hyper" pistons...just trying to find the right balance
