What do you mean by this. I don't quite understand it.

I'm just not sure what size intake runner (cc) I would benefit from with this cam. I don't want to go too big or too small. I think I have the 1" 5/8 primaries on my headers. They are pretty standard headers...

I know I REALLY need a good carb tune but I can't get it any better. I need to get some tuning time on the dyno with someone who knows what they're doing with a carb.

I think with this cam I will continue to make good power through the power band I just am looking at extending the power band higher in the tq and hp. I want to squeeze every last bit of power from this setup. I feel its a great street motor where I can hit the gas and break the rear end loose and just play with.

As soon as I can find one, I am going to swap in a 95" impala SS rear axle so I can get a little better 3.08 gears, limited slip, 8.5" rear end and disc brakes. More bang for my buck and its a direct bolt in to my "G" body.
