These recommendations from Blower Drive Service will give you some talking points.....
Blower Drive Service: We Deliver Horse Power! - Blower Drive Systems, Blower Kits, Blower Cams, Custom Carb Service
If you were thinkin' 6-71, you should know that there is a big bore case and a small bore case. If you were thinkin' 8-71, I'm thinkin' there was only one case size.

More good info....

Note that all the cams are ground on 110 LSA for pump gas. Cams used in a blower build using 114 LSA are for using alcohol, not pump gas.

Whereabouts in Washington? Big state, and some great choices for a blower engine builder in SW Wa. around Vancouver if you're close enough.

http://nutterracingengines.com/ Vancouver, Wa.
Britco Racing Engines, Centralia, Wa.
A few great ones in Portland, Or also, but that's across the river, and maybe too far? At least you'd save sales tax on your build though!

It is not out of the cards to travel for me. I just want a good reputable builder. there are a lot of "racing engine" builders out there but I want one that actually knows what he is doing. I am not gonna put 20k into a motor for it to be a boat ancor if ya know what I mean? haha

Talk to the guys who have the fast cars, fast boats, fast trucks, ask them who did the work on the motor.

If you don't mind traveling to Portland-Vancouver area, there are a few companies that have a great rep for doing supercharged engines, and racing motors. Columbia Racing Engines, and Nutter are probably the best known, and used in the area. Schnell Automotive is a 2nd generation shop that's been around since the early 60's and the sons are in their 60's now. When Ed Iskenderian was in town he told me Schnell Sr. was one of his first and longest customers to buy cams from him.
