I'm building a 350 with 062 vortec casting heads, 1.6 magnum rockers, 230/236 .510/.520 lsa 110 hydraulic roller, beehive springs, hurricane intake with a 750 double pumper and 1 5/8 longtube headers. It's getting backed up by a t56 and is going to be a street/strip brawler. So what do ya think...Could I go with a bigger cam and make a little more power with good torque? Oh and I'm using the stock bottom end so anybody have an idea what the compression is going to be around? I was thinking somewhere between 9-9.5:1

your compression depends on many factors.. how deep the piston is in the bore, the type of piston top, the compressed thickness of the gasket, the bore diameter of the gasket, and the actual cc of the head chamber...

you could always go with a bigger cam....... I would opt for a solid lifter cam over a hd roller....
