Anything smaller than the 254/254 .485/.485 302 cam is going in the right direction.

Find the cams specs online and watch intake valve closing @ .050, that'll tell you alot.

You'd be suprised just how much compression it takes run a cam that's good to 6,500 so to much compression isn't an issue unless you aren't running 100+ octane with an iron head.

I've got a 327 with 9.75:1 with a comp xtreme solid 230/236 and it really should have around 10:1.
