It will go in a 2wd shortbed chevy street/strip
454 block .030" over
427 crank making 432"
781 heads 2.19/1.88 118cc chamber
Hydraulic roller cam im thinking something in the .600" lift range to take advantage of the head flow
Dual plane intake
th400 that will be built and whatever recommended stall converter
Rear gears will be decided at the same time
The main issue i see is very low compression, 9.07:1 with the 16.5cc pistons I have. I dont think that would make a good combo. I wanna make around 550hp for whatever thats worth
Using Summit's Compression calculator with your numbers...
4.280 bore (4.25 +.030)
3.76 stroke
118 cc heads
-16.5 cc domed pistons
assumed .020 piston-to-deck clearance
assumed Felpro gasket with 4.370 bore and .039 compressed thickness
I get 8.69:1 CR and 432.77 CID

Using Wheelspin's calculator
I get 8.65:1

I've just removed my 781 heads and replaced them with 063 versions (68/69 396 closed 101cc chambers) hoping to get around 9.0:1 with my flat-tops.

Your setup with 063 heads would be awfully close to 10:1 ... which is right where you probably want to be.

From what I have read in regards to quench, decking the block to 0.00 would give you good quench and an additional .4 (10.4:1) compression. I also think, again based on what I have read, that the "perfect" CR is 10.25:1

I would also point out that you're obviously giving up some cubes with that shorter stroke. Is there a reason that you want or need to do this?
