I thought you'd be gone by now. I think some people need some serious apoligies before you continue to post, huh. You treat others like crap, then continue to come around here. I guess you just don't get it.

Let me guess, this is a budget build. Let us know how it runs on 8 octane. Better shoot for 2.1 compression ratio.

if your concerned with running on 87 then dont bother putting in too much of a cam, and with 60cc heads your going to have troubles with pump gas anyways. With Flat top speed pros youll be sitting at around 10.5:1 if you get it 0 decked, and you dont need large tube headers you arent gonna have much above 5000 rpm so you have no use for them, stick with a 1 5/8" It will suit you alot better,

Loud malibu, you need to stop everything your doing and doalot more reading before you tackle an engine rebuild, im gonna tell you plainand simple. Your going to have way more than 9.5:1 with 60cc chambers and flat tops believe me i dont care what the hell speed pro says...with 64cc chambers and flattops i get 10.3:1 with a 0 deck, with 58cc chambers i get 11.1:1 this is a 350 chevy that im currently building.

NOW You cant Port chambers, what are you talking about? this is the second time ive heard you say that. Who the hell told you you can can port chambers? Who ever it is stop talking to them theyre full if *****. Do YOU know what your talking about? You port intake runners, exaust runners and bowl areas not your combustion chamber. Dont take this the wrong way i might be an ********* to you but im just trying to save you some money and im the only one who will talk to you it seems so listen up. Before you try to tackle your engine rebuild read alot of information. ALOT of information specifically on rebuilding the small block chevy. Im glad your going to do it yourself wich is more than i can say for most people but before you put money in your motor educate yourself, you sound like an idiot talking about porting chambers. I remember my first engine build, if i didnt have someone double check it i would have been in alot of trouble. And just remember im only 3 years older than you but im speaking from expierence.

Ya, when I built up my first Chevy, we didn't have the internet to get valuable info from. I had a 4 door 55 Chev with "3 on the tree" and a 265 ci" engine with a rod hanging out the side of the block. My Pop got me a very used 283 out of a station wagon. I put the motor in the auto with the help of friends and also installed a Duntov "30/30" solid cam. I also installed a Western Auto Dual exhaust kit and a 4.56 one legged rear. What a ride! I thought it was the fasest car around until a 6 cylinder stick shift Mustang beat me after my engine ran out of breath because of the gear and the cam. Funny, if I would have had the internet back then, I probably wouldn't have made those same mistakes but then again, I probably would have. Keep asking questions and reading. It will come to you.

I don't know what happened between all of you people so all bull**** aside.....I'm building a similar engine (for the first time) and from the ton info I've seen and the shops around, I need to keep it under 9.5:1 to run on pump gas with no problems. With a 0 deck, flat tops, and 76cc heads I should be around 9.2-9.3:1. I'm putting it in my rockcrawler in the AZ desert so I need to keep a good idle and vacuum for my brakes. I'm going with a Comp 4X4xtreme X4254H. You can go alot more radical on the cam. I agree with the other guys that your calculations on CR are wrong. Theres alot of calculators online to figure out CR. Do a search for a CR calculator and decide which pistons from there.
