welcome....if you want it to sound like a tap dancer, back off the rocker nuts....the clacking will drive you crazy.......

Seriouslly, don't know what you mean by that. I will move this to the engine should get your answer there.

your looking for that high velocity v8 rythme. like the glossy cars at the drive ins have. kind of a bubble not a rumpty rump.

keep your build mild, with lower spring pressures. nice headers and a queiter turbo muffler. something like the dynomax super turbo.

Here's a good performing, nice running, basic
lower cost build:

modified oem Vortec heads for higher lift
available i.e. Scroggin Dickey Chev, Sallee Chev, etc

Performer RPM intake (Edelbrock - dual plane)

Comp Cams HE 262 flat tappet hydraulic cam

full length, small tube headers

Look thru these builds, you'll see there's a vast
difference between some combos, especially
between brands of heads, and cams.
There's a bunch of pages, check them all.

Some info on heads, and on some similar builds

I believe what your looking for is something around a 224 @ 50 of duration or more. The Edelbrock RPM cam would be the raggid edge of a street cam which has a killer idle. Hope this helps
