It's hard to build a decent compression high flow combo with this engine.. The 72 heads are real dogs. The large chambers will kill the compression. Terrible air flow. Best bet is to try for a pair of 96-98 cc. early closed chamber heads. This will keep the compression around 10-1. Still not great flow numbers but. Have a basic 3-angle valve job with some bowl blend and short side radius blending. Then go for a high lift short to mid duration hyd camshaft.

Bigger intake valves would be great if your wallet can stand it. But, the small bore and shrouding around the valves may not be worth it on a torqy street motor..

One 750 vac carb only!
