Can it be done with this setup? I need to choose the rotating assemblies compression and cam.
It appears to me you are building an engine from the manifold down. That is kind of backwards to the way that I think it should be done. Depending on those components that you have yet to choose, it shouldn't be hard to get the 1.5hp per cube....with just a 4 barrel.
