What kind of car are you installing this motor in. Weight makes a difference. The heavier the car the more torque is needed instead of hp. How much vacuum do you need to operate power brakes, etc? Check out these graphs and look at the vacuum readings too. The larger the camshafts also need bigger carburetors and rear gears.
