well since you already built it the only comment i have is to run it. most people ask for input prior to a build.

also, how did you run a 44 year old block with a std bore?

if your compression is less than around 9.5 - 10.0 it is not optimal.

i have never heard of a crane 588 cam, what is it? If you mean it has 588 lift your truck will never move unless you nave around 5.00 gears in it.

why do you want a spread bore intake?

why do you want a single plane intake?

Was this a build using only parts that were already laying around? No offense meant but it sounds like you had a bunch of parts collecting dust and decided to put them together. The main thing is to enjoy your creation.
