I've decided to build a 306 for a project car of mine, and I need help with the combination of heads, cam, and intake, etc.

The car is an '82 Notch, so it's carbed. I'm keeping this a fairly high compression, higher rpm, all motor build.

It's going to stay stock stroke and rod length, to save some money. I'm also going to be sending the block to a machine shop and refinishing it for the build.

So far I've been thinking of doing this:
- ARF 185cc heads w/ 58cc combustion chamber
- Some type of forged pistons with valve reliefs, -4cc dish bored 0.030 over
- Holley double pumper 650
- Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold
- Either an Anderson Ford N-61 cam, or a custom ground cam
- DSS stud girdle
- High volume oil pump
- New rod bearings, main cap bearings, gaskets, etc.

Also going to be using all ARP hardware, ect.

I have a few questions:

1. Does this combination work well together?
2. Is this fairly streetable, as in will the compression be too high for pump gas, etc.
3. Will this make 400+ horsepower?

Thank you for your time and help.

A custom cam can help you with your compression needs as to run pump gas or not. Also the custom cam will make it as streetable as you want it.

I am a fan of the TW heads but AFR are a good choice also. There are many options out there to go with so look around.

400 hp well not at the feet......
