I'm currently looking at bolting on a set of AFR 1054's to top this engine off. My plan for this motor is to use it for mud bogging. My dilemma is that I want to bolt on a set of heads that can really match this cam and make this motor push 550 horsepower to really spin all four of the 35 inch mud tires. Rear end is a 3.73 gear and plans to go to 4.56 are coming soon. Any advice to what set of heads, or cam change would be appreciated. I also want to be able to run no higher fuel than 93 octane but if alcohol is needed to raise HP and torque a reasonable enough amount to justify running it then I'm all for it. Thanks in advance.
