Can you share with us what those specs are? The more information you can supply, the easier it will be to provide correct answers for you. At this point, we know absolutely nothing about the motor.
cylinder heads used, chamber size, intake and exhaust runner size?
block number used?
pistons used, what crown design?
block deck height?
piston deck height?
head gaskets used?
decks cut or not?
heads cut or not?
part number on intake manifold?
part number on carburetor, what jets, what metering rods, what squirter.
Did the builder correct the damper to show exact top dead center of the piston with the TDC notch on the inertia ring coinciding with the "0" mark on the timing tab?
