just since you're the first one on here to say something i will have to meniton that i love to kill Pony's and their little 347's with my 385cid street car running 11's.

but anyway since that is out of the way. i agree with some on here that your compression doesn't sound right with the 882 heads. i have a saying about having machine work done on crappy heads for performance vehicles "you can polish a turd all you want but in the end you still have a turd" you need to find a different set of heads, look into EQ, RHS, or DART for a set of 180cc iron heads, the cam doesn't sound great but if you were to bump up the compression ratio to about 10:1 you would be able to offset the late intake closure from the cam, and i might look into a set of 1.6 rockers to help with the ramp rate as well. i dont think your carb is too far off but i would think a 650 would do you a little better once you put diffenent heads on there and increased the compression, i dont think a 700-750 is needed at all. and like others menitoned i would look at craiglist for a used performer RPM intake.
