Yea, After looking into angle milling I'll probably just run a .100" dome. I know it messes with flame travel, but I figure if I knock down the edges it won't be too terrible. I'm also going to install oversized valves and clean up the port work, which I failed to mention. In regards to the cam, I actaully found it is an Elgin cam with the specs changed slightly, I'm probably going to pick one up from Midwest Motorsports. Also, with the increased compression The low end won't be soggy at all, I'll loose some effective stroke wih the larger cam but I used to run around in a different S10 with a 2.5L and a 230 cam, which was an absolute blast. I wouldn't try to pull an RV through the mountians on this cam but in a small light weight truck with a manual I'm not too concerned with power at 1,500 RPM. I just want an idle below 1,000 and for it to run on 93 octane.
