This sounds like something a little more advanced that I'm going to trust myself doing correctly... something I'm sure I could pick up if I watched it done first. You sure know your motors cobalt!
I was doing some more research around the web and I'm going to just keep the crank and rods that I already have, and use them. I'll definitely be looking at bumping up the CR to 9.5 or 10:1 with some domed pistons though. I'm going to have my Dad take the block back to the machinist and have them check the deck, as I read a lot of factory blocks are not true on both ends. I'm not expecting a big or even minimal gain out of this, I just like having everything the way it should be.
Also, do you or anyone else have suggestions on a good Hydraulic Roller Cam? I've been looking at Lunati Voodoo's... what RPM range should I looking to keep it under and still driveable?
