I will def reconsider the intake and cam. I am 100% sure the crank is forged. My machinist is 100% sure the crank is forged. The number on the crank is 14088532 which according to the book I have says its forged. It also has no casting marks on it. It came out of an 880 block that was in a big bread van.
Will changing the throttle body help or will the intake still be a major choke point? I have also seen hi-flo runners but between the two of them thats gonna be about $700. I have always like the look of the edelbrock pro-flo XT. Maybe ill look into that.
I thought when they reground cams they had to put them through a heat treating process to harden the surface.
