Dont have the money and that would take all the fun out of it thats left after a 10 year project with only getting to drive a few tanks through it so far. That being said... if i run a 72cc chamber isnt that defeating the purpose of getting rid of my 882 76cc heads??? I'm still waiting to hear back from Dart if those pistons will be a flat no go or just check them out. As far as feder-mogal who makes the pistons says they should be fine with the 64cc chambers whether we're talking heart shaped or not we'll find out. As far as the compression goes, ya its like 11.67:1 or close to that. I dont care because race fuel is easy to get where im at and wont drive much other than when i want to play with it. So i think im just going to see if i can get them to fit and probably clearance the domes as need be.. A new cam is sooner than later so in the mean time I'm not too worried about that.
No.....its not the chamber volume that's at question, its the fact that as i have been told a zilliom times, the 882's are the low of the low. The 72cc head means you can run whatever fuel you choose, and I know you said good fuel is readily available,but wouldn't it be nice to not HAVE to run race gas? The profilers, or any other good head that have the 70-72cc chamber fit your build, they flow what you need to utilize your current cam, or almost any other you choose for a street strip motor. And they make it possible to run normal fuel. If you find it snappy and a decent performer now with 882's on it, when you bolt on a "good" head its going to make you grin like an idiot.
