Bogie may have the best (least cost solution) using 67cc vortec heads and .015 gasket with the same Lunati 60102 cam I get SCR = 9.5, DCR = 8.29, Quench = .058. I have not purchased heads or cam yet, I do have an old 64 vette 350 hp 327 alum manifold i was thinking of using, if i go with the vortec i will buy performer air gap. This is a street car and I will need to run pump gas, do you think the .058 quench will work ok with the vortec's at 8,29 DCR?
You can run just about any 64cc head and be fine with a .015" gasket, you're not on the edge.
