It will have indy 360-1 cnc heads 245 cc int port volume valve size is 2.150 int 1.60 exh. finished by Brian at IMM engines an indy intake and an SV-1. Compressions' about 15:1. Im planning on keeping the rpms below about 7000. My dyno program figures a cam of about 270* LSA of around 114* and lift of about .750. My question is am I trying to put to much stroke in it or can this combo produce 750 hp keeping the rpm below the 7K limit? Thanks!!
