Forget about less cam if that's what you have in mind. If your SCR truly is 11.00:1, then the cam that's in there now is perfectly matched to the SCR, providing a DCR of 8.53:1 with an intake closing point of 54 degrees after bottom dead center @0.050" tappet lift. Less cam will raise the DCR and render the motor inoperable on pump gas due to detonation. My best advice, build another, milder motor for cruising. Or cruise in another car, a stocker.
