Tuned port injection question???

yes am rebuilding my 87 camaro,and am planning on swapping the original 350 engine v-belt block stock bore that already gave everything it had... for a 1991 350 2 bolt main block bored 40 over with hyperutectic flat top piston approx. 10.3:1 compression ratio with 64cc, and dress it up with original tune port injection,and my question is...??? the compression ratio would go up and boost a little more power to at least 10-20hp with a double roller timing chain...??? is it going to be more fuel efficient...???any suggestions...???

By any chance are you from Posen?

Anyway, yes, a double roll chin will eat more efficiently.

Yes it could be more fuel efficient if you can keep your foot out of it. On the down side though, with 10:1 compression you will need to buy premium fuel for it.

Efficiency goes up about 4-5% for every ratio gained in compression. Fuel cost per gallon goes up about 9% between regular and premium. Just messing with the numbers looks something like this:

If the 8.3 to one engine gets 15 mpg, then the 10.3:1 engine then gets 16.2.

20 gallons of regular at $3.75 a gallon costs 75 dollars and the car goes 300 miles.

20 gallons of premium at 3.95 a gallon costs 79 dollars and the car goes 324 miles.

Dividing all this gobblety gook out; you get a per mile cost of 25 cents with 8.3:1 compression and regular gas, while it only costs .24 cents per mile with 10.3:1 compression and premium gas.

That is if he can keep his foot out of it with the added horsepower.

We all forgot to mention the added cost of tire replacement which is so common with horsepower gains.
