Thank you for your answer Bogie. As you may not have noticed i'we decided that this engine is just going back to my strip car, but with some modifications. Last time it was together it had stock bottom end with aprox 9:1 compression ratio, the comp cams street roller cam #12-769. Heads are and will be 235cc RHS with 2.08"/1.6" valves, the intake was regular Edelbrock Performer. It has 850 cfm holley hp carb and pro billet msd dissy with 6al ignition box. So as you answered my question really well for offroading. Does a drag race engine take the same abuse as you mentioned above or is the abuse different regarding pistons and rods ?
As the engine was above it ran 118 mp/h in the 1/4 mile at nearly 3000 lbs. But now i want more compression along with maybe bigger camshaft. Also i'm going to put a single plane Victor intake on the engine now.
