I built a similar engine for my nova

I used the article cobalt posted for my Nova

However I ended up running 8 to1 compression In order to run 87 octane. I get 21 m pg with an overdrive transmission. Naturally aspirated I run 13 flat in the quarter mile. With a 75 horsepower shot I run consistent 12.3 in a quarter mile.
