You can tune a Piano

But, you can't tuna a fish.

Thanks Tom. What can I expect with 10.3:1?

Thanks Tom. I would be running 93 octane and won't spin past 7,600 RPM. I would of course like to run the highest compression ration that is practical. With the forged pistons you install in the block, is the C/R 9.5:1? Also, it would be naturally aspirated only.

Yes, I was wondering what C/R ratio pistons Tom installed - so I probably should have asked the question that way. I was targeting about 10.5:1 given I have a stand alone ECU that is completely tunable for ignition advance (so I can be conservative with setting that impact knock).

Tom, another question, is the block you build safe to spin to 7,500 - 7,600 RPM?

1turbofocus Compression depends on what boost your going to run , what octane fuel , and how your going to be using the engine , daily driving , race etc

Most are for street and daily driving , I would do about 9.2 compression , shipping is hard to say becuse fuel cost changing so much , I would guess about 250-275 but guessing

If you sit down and figure everything up you will see you cant build it for what you can buy it and we do a lot of things you wouldnt do

Tom
Hi Tom, What's the approximate compression ratio of the built short block? Also, how much is shipping to the west coast?
