That explains pump gas/compression. At 8000 ft density altitude you only have 75 % sea level power available. (I am a pilot, check the density charts) That's about 8.5 compression at your altitude. That low of effective static compression and that hot of cam, your dynamic compression is so low......you probably will never have any low speed power..... If you can run 14s, that is pretty good at 75 % power. Consider Nitrous.
