.. That Lunati 230/230 @ .050" lift cam is an old grind and way too big for your possible compression ratios... it really needs about 11.0-11.5:1 to run properly... even then it wouldn't pull hard till above 3,000 RPMs... and with your compression ratios it would be like a vacuum leak and the engine would be a real dog at most street RPMs... and pisspoor MPG...

.. If you don't want to change pistons, I'd suggest looking around for a used pair of Chevy 350" Corvette/ZZX Crate engine -113 aluminum heads with 58cc chambers to keep compression ratio up into at least the 9's for that Comp XE268 224/230 cam... maybe even step back to an XE 262 or Summit 1103 cam...
