Kyle, There is a misunderstanding when it comes to cam profile. When a person install a cam with a large overlap giving a choppy idle and thinking you are going produce power threw out the RPM range. They are going to be disappointed when you apply gas and the rear tires will not break loose. The reason is any cam with a choppy idle will loose low RPM torque and transferred upstairs. The less cubic inch or compression in a motor, the less torque it will produce. Next, the manifold you using is not producing low RPM torque especially when using a large CFM carburetor. Two things you need to change is a dual plane manifold with air gap and a smaller carburetor like 600 CFM VS carb. Last you need a higher stall converter. Your distributor need to be full advance at 38* at 2800 to 3000 RPM. The name of the game is torque. Hope this helps.
