|techinspector1||Without knowing the piston crown configuration, nobody here can tell you anything. If the pistons you have in the motor now are flat-tops, the static compression ratio could be 10.5:1, if they're 30cc dished pistons, the static compression ratio could be 8.5:1. Until we know the skinny on the pistons, we're flying blind.|

In the end the only real solution is a large port head while keeping a careful eye on Dynamic Compression Ratio (DCR) while your there.

What's your initial timing?
You need lots of initial with that setup.
18-20 initial. 14 in the dizzy and another 10 from the vac advance all in by 3400.
Also. What car? What trans? Rearend? Convertor?

what are the tune up specs you are currently using?How many CFM do the jeg heads flow?
what makes you think its not performing correctly?

Help with Heads
i have a sbc 406 with eagle forged crank,eagle forged rod 5.7,kb pistons,xr288-10 cam..236 intake,242 exhaust,110 lobe @.05,edelbrock performer intake,holley 750 mech secondaries......i currently have the jegs aluminium heads 180cc intake,72cc combustion chamber, 2.02 intake,1.6 exhaust.......this motor is just not making anykind of power like i think it should.....should i change the heads and if so what should i get? i just think i need to be making more power. how does this setup look or what should i change to make power. any input will be appriciated.
