engine build thoughts

Hi all! Just want to say hi and see what you think for my engine list. Any suggestions please chime in. Would like to hear any ideas. So here goes....

Comp HE268 cam with matching lifters
Z28 springs
Comp Magnum Roller tipped rockers
Titanium retainers
461 heads 1.94 1.5 pocket ported
Speed Pro Hypereutectic Flat Tops .030
Stock Steel Crank
Vortec Fractured Rods
Double Roller timing chain
Summit compression calculator says will end up about 9.88:1
Eps intake with a 4160 650 holley

It will be used in a daily driver with a 700r4 backing it up and a set of 3.73. Besides the occasional Stop light run won't be racing it.
I think it will be an okay running little 355 but do want the opinions of others.

Re: engine build thoughts

Specs look decent, should scoot pretty good. What is the gasoline quality like in your area? You will have to run a higher octane. The builds I do here in Calif just about require keeping the compression under 9-1 and the cams a little milder in the 262 to 266 region, smog certs to contend with along with all the other bull...

We can get 93 here and it isn't to bad of gas. I bet that's not to fun over at Cali having to run that low of compression.

Depends on what you want the engine to do

Re: engine build thoughts

Give the guys at Comp Cams a call and see what they think. As you might know, later intake valve closure timing of a wilder cam tends to take the edge off of a higher static compression ratio. I couldn't guess how much, but Comp Cams might have an idea.
