5.7" scat rods.
KB 168 pistons.
GM large port BOWTIE vortec heads. New assembled. part number 25534446
Isky cam #201534 1.5 roller rockers
installed on a 102 intake C/L (degree in the cam)
Performer rpm or Super vic vortec intake.
750 hp carb
1-5/8" headers

The finished compression ratio will be a 91 pump gas friendly 9.7:1

Be ware of serious street strip power.
You'd best hang on tight when you hammer this one.
