Can you afford to go bigger? If so, go bigger!! You wll not regret it.Don't do the baby step thing.88 to a 98,then 103 or 107 to eventually end at a 117!!! Go big from the door, & save in the end.1 Big build instead of 2 or 3 builds!!! JMHOP!!!

Twin Cam 88-98 build

I sure would like to go bigger with a set of s+s wheels but with my
limited funds that would make another year wait.I want to ride as soon as i can even with what I am planning I dont see it coming together ready to romp until this winter.Lucky for me there is no such
thing as winter in la la land.Now if I win the lotto LOOK OUT WORLD !

Not a bad setup. For SE stuff the 251's work good. Stock oil pump and plate will work just fine for your build if you so desire. 10.1-1 is a very safe level. Do you already own the parts?

aka_Matt wants to know Dino or Syn?
i think u wrote the compression wrong... should it say: 10.1:1 ?
what kind of bike is it? what kind of riding do u do, 1 up, 2 up?
with those cams, i'd bring the comp up to 10.5:1 if a lighter bike or ridden 1 up, maybe 10.3 if a heavy bike, or ridden 2 up...

Sound like a good build. My build is similar except for the 37G Andrews cam, Python 2x2 with the power chamber, Dynatec TC88, and HD high volumne pump with the R&R cam plate. Dan's a great guy to deal with. I brought my stuff to him a few weeks back when I was home on leave. He doesn't do the hard sell and is free with the technical advice.

If you go bigger you will have to split the cases to bore the spigot hole. this will cost more money and if you don't need all that testosterone for the street you will be happy with your build.

With the 4" crank, I think there are better cams out there

Twin Cam 88-98 Build Advice or Opinions

I already own the parts and as cams go there are so many I just
picked one I thought was reasonable and went with it.My riding style
is almost always solo and to work and back.Truthfully the t.c. 88
is surprisingly powerful.I want to get the headwork and cylinder/piston work
done as soon as I can then have everything installed and tuned. Its like Tom
Petty says "that the waiting is the hardest part" and its true.

While it is true, there may be better cams out there, that set has a good track record if done right. As I said before, 10.1-1 is very safe for all heat and riding conditions, but as Matt pointed out maybe a little soft. If it were mine on my bagger, I would have the head adjusted for a 10.5-1 comp. Make sure the squish is right also. (.030). You've got some good parts there. If it gets built and tuned right, it should work fine. Are you or a good Indy doing the work?

That should be a great set up with a bit more compression and the heads done to match those cams. Mine pulled hard down low and all the way through at 10.25 to 1 with Bailsey heads.

I would add compression releases though. Mine didn't have them and hot starts were tough.

You may also have some valve noise with those cams.
