Went to NEdragway Sunday for a swap meet, but all I got was a timing chain cover.  ::)

ment 87 cc, depending on the piston used, you could ideally keep the compression ratio around 9.XX:1 which would give you a nice flowing head, that can take a couple lb's of boost no problem   or   you could build a great cruising engine with a low compression able to run 87-89 pump gas and still have plenty of punch.

With the 87cc heads and the pistons I am going to use, it will be about a 10.4:1 . witch should be a good comprimise for street/strip type driving.

I wasn't criticizing, just wondering. with a 87 cc head, your options are pretty endless, it's not like your committing to a 93 or 84 cc head that would be more ideal to a specific induction system. the only limitation you are really setting is being reliant on 89-93 octane, (big deal huh)  I am loving this project...
