Hi Cliff,
You are way behind the times here. Please check out the graphs  and data 
from Chevrolet sources of a 140 hp engine having the 95 hp cam and 4  degree 
retard. You will see that this combination produces "way more" torque  than a 
110 up to about 4000 rpm. That is just what a Corvair 95 needs.  See the 
recent version of my book, CORVAIR SECRETS, available from  Clarks and me.
Everybody ought to have a copy just to advance their Corvair  knowledge.
