Not at all! :D Thank you for the advice and I think you are dead on. A good engineer friend of mine I've gone through school with is building a '72 Toyota Celica with a Lexus UZ v8 swap. He's running LS injectors and megasquirt ecu. His advice is the same as yours. What I'd like to do is switch to the marine 4.3L intake manifold because it runs more easily accessed and up-gradable injectors (not the spider ones like I have) and run megasquirt with some decent widebands to make sure I have the fuel and air sorted. I agree, a leaned out WOT pull with the SC and bye bye engine build haha!
I appreciate the advice, thank you for taking the time to send me the message.
Hey Jim... so tell me, if you were to trade places with me, knowing what you know today, would you get the 7cc pistons and use a 10.17static ratio with 7.6 dynamic, or go with the 12cc and try and tune the cam timing later on to boost the dcr.
Having a large power band is NOT and issue... however obviously a hot rod is made to show off by doing burnouts ahaha.
You seem to really understand where i'm coming from and I keep getting so much contradicting info that its hard to make a choice... keep in mind i'm very average at tuning
