Ok, here is the list for now

Weiand Stealth, Edelbrock Performer RPM, or possibly an Edelbrock Victor

Stock length H-beam rods

Speed pro L2443NF pistons or any other forged piston that will give me similar compression

No smaller than a Holley 950 cfm gas carb

Solid flat tappet cam. Preferably something pretty large and already broken in with matching lifters.

Let me know what you guys have. Thanks, Brandon

I have two solid flat cams if you're interested, both are new in box

Lazer 246/246 .647/.647 106lsa

Comp 250/250 .625/.625 110lsa

$125 takes either one...

I'd really prefer to find a cam that is already broken in. This is the engine that I'm building to experiment with E85 and I'd rather not have to worry about a cam breaking in too. But if I can't find one, I'll be interested. Do those cams include lifters?

E85? Hmmm... I would think if you jet it properly. it'd run fine.. I saw something online, a scanned copy of "tuning your carb to run with E85" or something along those lines. It looked like an older article. Expect worse MPG.

That's why I'm going to run 13.5:1 compression. And that is the reason why I don't to worry about having to break in a cam. I'll have my hands full keeping the engine from blowing up :)
