I have a 454HO in the 59 Elky
2 row BeCool, twin 11" Spal fans
set to come on @ 225.

My timing is right at 48* with the vacuum advance and is in @2500. (18*initial)<<<<<I think
I really need to get this to come in quicker as in 5th @70mph only 2100RPM, and all the advance is not there yet.

As a general rule, this car will run right at 180-190 in 100* outside air.

Temps only creep up in turbulent air (behind traffic), or when sitting at an intersection.

So, at 70mph, you are spinning what----3700??
