Im thinking this zz cam will be a little less aggressive and more streetable. I could always add a little spray down the road if I want more at the track. My bottom end is forged so it can take it.

I came up with 8.4 dcr which is right on the limit for pump gas I think. What are you guys thoughts on that. Did I calculate that right?
I get 8.518:1 DCR, using 38 +15 for the intake closing point, 9.8:1 SCR, 5.703 rod and 3.750" stroke. Tighten up the squish.
