What is 12-5-1? Are you trying to say that the static compression ratio is 12.5:1?

With the info provided it should make somewhere between 9 and 9,000 Horsepower....you'll have to build it to get any more specific than that.

What the 2 above posters are really saying to you,is that if you want accurate opinions on combos,you need to post all the necessary information.Not just a cam part #,but the specs,what kind of vehicle,how much does it weigh,what gearing,tranny,torque converter stall speed,etc.,etc.
