    Sounds good to me. Premium gas needed with that compression.

    Personally I'd use a different cam with that conveter/gear combo.

    What do I think ?
    We've only machined/built/dyno'd that same/very similar combo's about 40 or so times in the last 10 years ?

    Use the 300-14 street dom as it WILL fit underhood .... no question
    Substitute the XE274H CompCam in a 3-Bolt Timing configuration ..... "23" prefix instead of the 21
    Uses 91 Octane just fine....
    and,
    you have a very solid 510 Ft/Lb on around 480-490 hp Street Engine that will put a poo-eat'in grin ur yap.... that your wife can't wipe off with a two by four ?
    That's what I think !

      me too
      look at the XE275HL if you like comp It's 10 degrees shorter but has the lobes spread out to 110
      so it willidle better andpull more vacuum

      I do not see anything that's ostalgia ABOUT the nostalgia plus- much older lobes than the newer HL line
      274H is oldie but moldy grind but would work well but leave torque on the table

        Iffin it was me, I'd up the compression a bit more......:D Actually, I'm thinking your static compression is going to be a bit more than 10-1 anyways.

        My 2 cents, You are just gonna be making a driver. If you bought all the parts already,use 'um.Sounds like you are not after high HP or fast times.More like one cool ride that will sound good,look good and you will have fun crusin'.
