Not unless you get real carried away. You can tighten it up quite a bit but only go .004" looser at the most than cam card spec.

Try .020"-.022" set cold.

RPM issue: Possible weak spark. Make sure the engine is grounded to the car body. Other wise your shifter cable is the ground. -not good for the spark or the cable life.

Good lookin' Regal
