I agree with fbird88 that i do need more gear. summit sells a 3.90's for my 8.5 and i think that would be about ideal for me, but 4.10's sound tempting. My goal for my car is to eventually to be a nice prostreeter street/strip ride. I do have acces to race gas but i really dont want to go that route. 91 at highest. I've been playing around with a dynamic CR calculator and the cam would have to be way radical to get a dynamic CR around 8:1 which to my understanding is pump gas worthy. But I could use some help deciding whether I should use a thicker head gasket and sacrifice quench distance, or use 72cc heads and give up quench area. But 91 is a definite must.
