What are you looking to do with your 357 SBC?

This will dictate your RPM range,etc.

11:1 is alittle high for PG but with E-85 12.5:1+ is possible(some Mopar SB guys run 13.8:1 CR).

Just to get you in the ballpark, you'll want 236 degrees duration @0.050" tappet lift. That'll match up with your static compression ratio and your converter.

I have the Lunati VooDoo 60133 with a 383 with slightly larger heads. Looks like you are on the right track. Look at the 60131, it would still be a beast but have better street manners.
