The only reason i am considering the 882 heads is because the intake bolt pattern is designed for earlier heads. I have a set kicking around, and i have flat top pistons which would yield about 9.0:1 compression. Maybe some small chamber 305 heads with 1.94x1.5 valves will work better but then i will have to get different pistons. 70mph should be about 2200 rpm is that a good cruise rpm.
