im installing a 327 into a 75 chevy truck and my friend (the owner) his friends are telling him its going to ping all day long....
the specs are 1967 327 block .030 over bore with TRW L2166N pistons .125 dome forged with crate 350 76cc heads(1.94int), as far as i can tell it will end up with approx. 9.0 compression and 332 CU. his redneck friends keep telling him its too high compression. i say theyre smokin too much hay. the short block was a barely used engine from a friend who ran it with 64cc heads and the cam looks to be(i measured with a dial caliper) .3 at the cam so that would be .45 total lift at the heads, i say it will make a good strong engine much better than a stock 350. any one done a combo like this?? or input on compression for such an engine.
