I agree... With those heads power is going to go flat at 5500-5800 rpm.

Those heads are just killing what potential the short block has. They would make a good low rpm torque truck motor head, but everything in the 12.5-1 compression short block looks aimed at a 3000-6500+ rpm performance target.

Cam sound like it is intended to turn up to 7000 rpm. Would be a lot easier to tell rpm range from the .050" duration, and whether it is a solid flat tappet, hydro flat, or roller.

A set of Dart 215's or similar heads that will flow somewhere close to 250cfm at .550" valve lift on the intake and his guess would then be closer to correct.
I was estimating around the 400 mark.....

What di you think about a set of ported Sportsman II on same combo....?

Also, that cam seems big....
