Is it standard bore?
What compression will you be running?
Fuel injection or carb?

It will be .030" over with a longer stroke crank (4.250"). Depending on the heads we choose, I'm looking for about 11:1. this is the kit I am leaning towards;

Flat tops nice.
Thats allot of compression, dont think regular gas will do.  Might have to go with race fuel, what do you think?
