I'll have a 10:1 CR with the 416 heads. I'm using a Weiand 7504 intake and a Holley 600 CFM. What cam should I use? I can't make up my mind
You started off saying +0.060" on the block bore. What size is it now? If it's stock at 3.875", could you back down to boring it +0.030" instead of +0.060"?
Is the block deck height stock right now at ~9.025"? You said the heads have been cut. Do you know how much?
By the way, if Crower posted an operating range of idle to 6000 on any of their cam grinds, then shame on them. An engine may operate
from idle to 6000, but it will not make useable power from idle to 6000 with any one camshaft. The camshaft operating range, where it makes power, is normally 3500 to 3800 rpm's, like from idle to 4500 or 1000 to 4800 or 1500 to 5300 or 2000 to 5800 or whatever. I just wanted to make that clear so that others reading this thread will not get the wrong idea and think there is something magical about Crower cams that permits them to make power over a 5200 rpm range (idle to 6000).
