A mistake... Good for pulling the boat out...

Also a little concerned about the pistons...? You mentioned stock compression but are they stock cast pistons...? Also the compression you list is kinda low to support the cam...? With rectangle heads and the cam/compression issue mixed with the stall speed and rear gear it may be kinda lax getting off the line...? Most cam`s of that size tend to require about 10.5 to 1 or higher also more stall speed around 3000...?

Not sure what it may run in the 1/4 mile but once it gets wound up it should pull good in the mid-range area but tend to fall off on the top...? I would say a possible 12.5-13.5...? at best...?

Just remember the track tells the tale on a fast street car... (it breaks your heart)
