Default snowboundrmk's 360 build

I've been working on this for a while its coming along pretty slow due to not having money. Plan is full rebuild with higher compression, cam, roller rockers, plenum fix, long tubes, and I was thinking about carb to tune it but I was advised against that by many so I'm trying to figure out a simple megasquirt setup. The mill is from a 99 Durango with 133k on the clock.

So the machine shop called and I'm going .010 on the mains and rods and .020 on the pistons. Before I start calculating different combos to raise my compression I want to be sure I know what the specs are stock. Does this look right?

So assuming those specs^ are correct, what do you guys think I should do for compression 10:1 and run 91 or 9.6:1 like the hemi's and run 89 octane?

What cam do you want to run? (yes, it makes a difference) Where do you want your power to be?

Maybe this one: http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/p...r&partid=11433. I want good power low to midrange. I'm open for recommendations on cams, maybe even the same cam redneck is using.

So these pistons and head gaskets will give me almost 10:1 what do you think?:

I ended up getting stock pistons so the compression will only be a tad higher from the .020 bore. What do you think of this cam? http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/p...2&partid=28053
