Don't see any reason for porting heads if you are going N/A and not looking for huge numbers.

I would go with a very slight dished piston -10 or -7 Compression would be great for a NA enginge with a good set of cams.
Is the -7 or -10 referring to the cc? I like the direction jferg is going.

Yes. The dish of the piston. I don't want to go extreme. Probably a 10:1 compression. I'd like to make power staying naturally aspirated but want to have the potential to boost it in a year or two

You might want to stay around 9 or 9.5:1 with a built bottom. I mean if you plan to boost

Take some of your spare parts and fab an axle. Rolling is sooo much easier.

I dont need to advance or retard them at all just need them to work like stock lol
It's def safer with a degree tool. But doable without it. Since you aren't advancing or retarding it, just line the dots up. Hopefully the cobra cams are the cog.
