Not bad I mean I had some issues with some of my rocker studs backing out causing excess clearance and making noise but once I adjusted them correctly they are fine. Im using the factory hydraulic roller lifters from a vortec engine.

I had it at 750-800 but when I put it in gear the vacuum needle would start jumping around along with the idle and die. Most likely a tuning issue but it has plenty of initial timing so im assuming a little too rich.
