Well shoot, I may have to go back and double check that it didnt get installed a tooth off. Although it shouldnt have because we turned the engine over to make sure that the dots on the cam and crank lined up with each other after making a revolution. Quesition: There were 3 different ways to install the cam; retarded, straight up (which I used), and advanced. Installing it advanced increases low speed torque while retarding it increases high end torque. Would it have been better to install it advanced for low speed torque in a heavy vehicle like mine?

Anyway, yeah I used the same quadrajet carb. I had to use an adapter for it though going from the spreadbore carb to squarebore intake. The adapter is the open center style. Well, I am going to do a compression test on it tonight and see what I find.
