Maybe this will help you out some. I have a 350 0.04 over with flat top pistons and stock 882 heads. This engine came with the car (81 corvette). It has the th350c auto trans, 287 stock rear gear. I have installed long tube headers 2 1/2 dual pipes with magna flow mufflers. Cam shaft unknown. 600 cfm edle carb and edle performer intake. The engine runs great but no way a powerhouse. I get 12mpg hot rodding around town and the best on the highway was 17-18mpg. IMO the 882 smog heads are junk. Either for performance or gas milage. Cant wait for winter tear down and new top end build
