If your static compression ratio is truly 9.00:1, then the dynamic compression ratio with this cam will be 8.09:1. (intake valve closes at 32 degrees ABDC).When I read your first post, I thought the motor would be a typical low compression boat anchor (around 8:1).

That cam will work fine on pump gas and yield decent power. If you want more low end, use a cam that's a little bit smaller, to raise the DCR some. Maybe a cam with 5-7 degrees less at 0.050".

Are you paying attention to the squish?
