a decent holley with a off the shelf set of protopline like being sold in the parts area, or dart heads will be enough with a 355 to walk on them in your class. i ran good with double humps also at cms, with a 383 and 355, just remember SMALL CAM IS THE KEY!! most the street stocks have too large of cams. you might call kevin stoa at jrmotorsports for some cam advice, he knows alot.

yes it limits you but mostly on the top end. on the dyno the best i've seen is 425hp from a 4412 holley. if you wanna spend the money and get the compression up there 500hp can be done. just ask steve h.
