of course you have to have the proper valve train; this type of engine would be a good candidate for RSR rockers (shims) I think, and some nice titanium retainers and aase or similar springs. not cheap, but if you're shooting for those revs...

seems like 66x98 would be fun, if you're doing JEs anyway...

Actually, I'll run something hotter than an "s" cam due to the larger displacement. Henry Schmidt recommended a couple. I think I could even run RSR-profile cams. This motor won't have much torque at all, so I'll have to rev it up to go fast!

Sounds great. Henry probably builds more of these motors than anyone so you are in good hands.
