Trucks are very heavy. They need a lot lot of power and torque to get good "performance"
You should consider supercharging that motor. It already has blower friendly low compression ratio.

The low cr stock crate motor heads can be improved with hand porting. DIY, not worth paying for porting these.

Even tho these are lame stock heads they are a better start point then the 882 head. (better end result after DIY porting)

that + a blower + a moderate blower friendly cam =s a fast street truck.

Very effective on trucks. 400++HP and lots of truck torque with a 142cid blower.
Sell the gear drive (and the 882's) to someone you don't like
