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.
Can I cruise this motor with some carb and timing adjustment? Im ok with a slightly radical motor as I only go 5-10 miles to local car shows and not really looking to go stock..I guess I want to be able to drive this car to the track a few miles away and drive ti to local meets. Or do you think this motor is too ridiculously radical for that? I mean i have seen guys cruising big ***** blown big blocks to the meets..
