If the heads are to be reworked, a Wood 9F, and potential of 140 hp, and 140 torque is within reach.
We'd use a set of .650" beehives at that point.

You'll be fine, after all the biggest you can easily go to is 143" - should be adequate.....

Same everything besides cam. 6500 springs, S&S roller/ lifters and compression set to 10.8. HPI 55/58 w/ HPI air cleaner. Thunderheader X series 2-1.

This is the 662-2 Tman cam and not the Woods 9F cam mentioned but they are close enough that this can still give a good idea of the tq that can be gained.

If looking for a boat-load of torque coming off the bottom, a T-Man 660SM at 10.5 cr would be a home run.
