LA360 compression

Unless there is something you aren’t saying, I say **** THAT ****.

Deck the block to zero deck and send it. You don’t have enough cam to run much more than 9:1 unless your tune up is on the mark.

I bet the pistons are .100 down the hole. Deck it off, fit the intake manifold and send it.

You don’t need all that other ****.
Well.....that'll WORK for sure for compression. What about piston to valve clearance with a true flat top at zero deck? You think he'd be ok?
