Engine is pretty much together on the stand. Last thing is installing the push rods and setting valve lash. Ordered the push rods today. Also ordered the nitrous jets today. Last pic is a comparison between the new and old cam. New is on the left. .050" lift number is the same on both intakes, exhaust is smaller by 4 degrees on the new cam.

Hi 86GN,
Is that going in the Vette?
Should pull some serious numbers.
Is that a pump gas engine?

It's going back into the 'vette. It's got a little too much compression for me to consider it a pump gas engine, especially on the hose. If we had E85 readily available I'd consider it a pump gas engine.

The heads are Canfields. The plugs in the front are just core plugs.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what this one does.

Engine is ~ 12.1:1 compression. E85 has an octane rating of 104. Blend is supposed to be 85 % ethanol, 15% gas. What I've read is that the blend is within 1%. With the addition of the gas the fuel actually has a higher heat content than 100% methanol.
