This looks almost like an engine combo that would be better suited for a larger CU.IN smallblock. You are putting a pretty hefty cam (even for a larger cube smallblock) and a high RPM intake in there and like killer said, it wouldn't be a nice street combo. Also, like killer said, the carb is too big. Even with those heads and cam, you aren't going to flow enough to warrant such a large carb. You dont have the cubes for it.

What is the purpose of this car going to be? Street car? Strip only?

As it is now, the engine is really going to dog off the line and isn't going to start making power until the mid-high 3000 RPM range.
