    High compression Small Block or LT1?

    Anyone have any experience making a very high compression LT1 or Small Block Chevy? I am talking 13-14:1 range....

    Thinking of building an LT1 for E85....

    Probably going to have to dome it for sure....

    When I saw the thread title I immediately thought "Oh boy, Tom's got a camshaft with an ungodly amount of overlap sitting around and he's bored..." I'm assuming you'd be dropping this into your FWB?

    Well, I am hoping to make the first that I have ever heard of Alky Fleetwood (last gen).....

    See with a cam like a CC502 and 13:1 compression, a beefy bottom end would be needed, and on alky it would be perfectly at home on the street. And not to mention, an animal...
