What we do in our dyno cell, and every other dyno cell we have worked in is check and set total at 3000 RPM for a street motor.

Then verify that the base timing at idle set point is reasonable, like in the 10-12 range. If it's not your going to have to have the distributor recurved, either with bushings or weights, depending on the distributor. You also want to make sure that at idle speed the timing setpoint is pretty rock stable, no wavering or wide fluttering.
