-Cam is a mild RV cam. Im not sure of the duration. Very mild though, just above stock.
-Air Gap Edelbrock Intake Manifold
-Holly 650 DP Carb
-Turbo 400
-Stock Differential
-Floor Shifter
-HEI Ignition

If I remember correctly, the total advance is between 32-36. Ill have to double check tomorrow.

I think thats it as far as performance mods are concerned.

Let me know if you need any additional info.

".080" over"?! are you sure? That's going to lead to a LOT of problems.

The timing has already been mentioned.

And for that mild combo that 600 edelbrock is a MUCH better match, though it may have needed tuning and/or cleaning.
