That cam is not wild and the motor shouldn't have to idle at 1K to run. Whats your vacuum reading? If it's below 10 or 11"s then there is a problem. Also, how about a compression check. Did you put this cam in that needs at the very least, 9 to one compression, in a 8 to one motor? If your compression is less than 140 psi, give or take, then you need to up your compression or advance the cam. As you know, sometimes thing don't work out with our rigs immediately...we've all been there!
