I put 64cc dart iron eagle heads on a 350 goodwrench engine (12cc pistons) and made 9.3:1 cr, used a compcam 260H (212/212), and it runs on 87 octane with 38 total degrees of timing, 2000 stall, 2.87 gear, and 3000 pounds.

Well I bought a comp cams 260H last night. 260 int./260 exh duration. .440/.440 lift. I think this will be the best bet for what we want. And later on we can do a head swap to bump up the compression a little bit.

I'm running a 78 Camaro XE 256H 3.23 and it drives fine, sounds good at 800 idle. Not sure how heavy your car is (mines 3600) but i think you would be safe to run a 262H if you changed your gears.
