Going into a 78 C10 Blazer.
No fenderwells. Build headers first then put fenderwells
back or actually cut them to fit.

You need more compression.

I'm limited to 91 octane and a dish piston by rules.
I wish I could have more compression.
I have to run a 30'mile street test.
I have that taken care by a dual fan and dual radiator setup.
