    I have a low mileage crate 350 short block. heads are long gone, but I have a pair of 88 corvette aluminum heads ('113 castings) which are 58 cc chambers. The block has stock dished pistons. what would I expect to get for a comp ratio? roughly. and what would be a good camshaft to use in it? just want a decent running cruiser that I can light up the tires when I want to.
    thanks

    Assuming a 12cc dish, and 58cc chambers, 0.025 inch deck height, and factory 0.015 inch head gasket, 10.1:1. If you go with a typical 0.038 inch head gasket, 9.6:1.
