What the c/r ? I can run this on DD for you, but I need to know what heads you are using (casting #). Also, what's the p/n on that Lunati cam?

I would guess between 330 - 360 hp at the crank depending on the heads & c/r.

What intake manifold and carburetor are you using? What are the actual head castings? Are they aftermarket of some sort or are they factory heads like 461s, 186s, 882s, etc...? I have a feeling that cam might be too big for your engine... Can't say for sure because you still have not given enough info on your engine.

That's a pretty big cam, & the single plane intake moves up the powerband even more. With that combo, the heads will be signing off before any real hp starts happening. You will also need around 11:1 C/R keep some pressure in the cyl running that big cam.

I would keep the intake duration at .050 between 225-230 with about 9.5: 1 C/R, & a high-rise dual plane intake, like a performer RPM or something.

I have to agree with the previous posts. Your heads are killing the upper rpm power and intake is killing the bottom end torque - you kind of in the middle without the benefit of either torque or horsepower.

You could go with a different cam, dual plane intake for a street car - or you could go with more compression ratio, new heads or more porting and maybe even a bigger camshaft if its a strip only car.

I ran it thru the computer just to see what happened

165 cc is about right. I think there was a factory head in the 180's - Turbo heads?
