I'm thinking that a rebuild of the original would be preferable, I've allready got one extra smallblock (a 383 stroker that needs AV gas to run properly) and actually enjoy doing the work. I found the specs for L-82 option, 210 HP, 9:1 with catalytic converter, no air pump. Those heads are 76cc? If I have to go .030 over (100K miles, sounds likely) I'll go for pistons that will give me 10 or 10.5:1, and look for a cam in the 215- .450" range. suggestions for cam and intake are welcomed. (btw, I'll take care of it nicely, thanks for the offer!)
