Well, I tried going FI, but it seems like a firm understanding would another 4 years of college...so hears the deal. I went to a local swap meet a few months back (2 the Pamona Fairplex for those familiar with the area) and happen upon a LS2 CheaTR by Thunder Racing:: 215/230 .629/.592 117 LSA. I figure 'hell, I've got a cam, why not some 243 heads', so I searched and the Stage II 243's by Patriot seem to be calling me ::
Combustion Chamber: 59cc
Intake Runner: 227cc
Exhaust Runner: 70cc
Intake Valve: 2.02"
Exhaust Valve: 1.57"
So heres my query, will this head/cam combo work?
The combustion chamber will give me a bump in compression, and both manufactures claim "up to 40 HP" gain, and my understanding is that the CheaTR series is stealthy @ idle and has an amazing powerband (idle to 6800RPM)
so the way i see it, and easy 400......

That lsa brings your powerband way up top. Do you have headers? Most would recommend a bigger cam but what the hell you can be our guinnea pig.
