I still think the secondaries are opening just a wee bit too soon giving you that what you say is a bog..I would for sure look into the tuning before throwing a bunch of $$$$$$$$$$ at it..
I've only got about 150 miles on this engine so far. It runs good, and I do plan on a gear swap soon. But for now, it's what I've got. I'm sure Patrick set the carb up right, and I did submit a much lower gear to him to build it. I'll call him after they get back from the holiday and see what he recommends. In the mean Time, I plan on messing with the timing, and curve to help out some. I don't want to put money into tuning that Edelbrock 600, since I'm not going to be using it anyway. Just a waste of $$! I can live with that slight soft spot to put some break in miles on it. Thanks for all the input. I just mainly wanted to know if I would mess anything up by running it as is.
