I think that if driveability is of little concern and a 3000-3500 stall with a 3.73 or lower gear it will be a good combo even with pump gas...assuming that the cam has a tight lobe sep, which you did not post.. Do you have the lobe seperation by chance?

But a nice 700 dbl.pumper!!!

I swear that I didn't see your post before I wrote this, Firestone!!

hey hey hey! ....okay!!! thanks!!!will consider all!!!!

A 106 lobe seperation would be great for a 10.5 pump gas engine but i think that was lobe centerline listed?

lash-Lobe c?? ... .024-106c

In the doug herbert catalog and onthe cam spec sheet it says " rough idle,moderate performance usage,good mid-range HP,increased comp. ratio advised,great for short oval tracks or stock weight drag cars"

...and someone mentioned to me that this was the biggest cam I could have without having to get a stall or I could get away with a 2500-3000 stall...??

Ok, i re-read. OP said 106 C and Oddrodder said 106 lobe sep!

Your lobe sep determines how power is distributed in the rpm range. A tight sep makes for a less efficient engine with power being concentrated in the mid and mid-upper rpm ranges. It will allow for more compression as it bleed off pressure from valve overlap.
A wide lobe sep on the other hand is more efficient but builds a lot of cylinder pressure and is better suited for lower compression daily drivers (or highway rockets). They will provide a smoother idle with more initial response and more topend power but will result in lower peak numbers due to their wide power band.

Hey NXS, your graph is a comparion of say a 106 to 112 LSA? It leaves a little to the imagination! I tried to watch your rainy day video a while ago but it wouldn't load for some reason? Think I'll go try again!!

Well the graph may not be that great, but the vid should load. Keep in mind this is a V6 with welded spiders. I held it kind of straight until the end. It got a bit sideways just before it stopped spinning. I figure that sign is about 1/8 mile from my driveway.
So, will that block work for you? I hope so b/c that was a long ways to drive for a cracked block, lol!

Yeah, I'm sure I can use it. I found a pretty bad crack in a different cylinder than the one we were lookin' at! Hope it doesn't take 2 sleeves!! I'll try to get a pic. of it in a minute or two! Checked out the video tried to make out the roadsign three or four times, I think I could read 412.

I would actually consider the Performer RPM air gap. It is rated to 6500 RPM, but on a 327 it will probably pull close to 7000 RPM. The 700 carb sounds good. If you changed your intake, I think a 3200-3500 stall would work well. You have 200cc runner heads right?

Oddrodder, it looks like we are pretty much on the same page with this one.
