Re: compression ratio
Thanks again for the info, guys. The calculators I have used pretty much seen to come out at 9.6/1 to 10/1 at most.
Just seems to run pretty well for a slightly modified 350. Has run 8.10/88mph in the 1/8, and 12.65 in the quarter, and so far it really hasn't launched well off the line at all. I went from the Vic Jr to the Performer RPM with a lot of improvement on the lower end, but haven't run it at the track yet with the intake change. It is a 4-speed car too, with 2.2 1st gear. Could have used more gear than the 4.10, but didn't want to get nutso for the street.
Anyway, thought maybe it had a bit more compression than 9.6/1.
Would love to drop the compression a bit more and then go with Procharger, but my wife would have a nervous breakdown if i spent that money. probably have $40K into the car now, and I hear about that most every day. Oh well, If she gets too bad, I'll probably miss her when she's gone!! Aww just kidding.
