Be aware your pump gas is no better than ours here. Different rating standard.
Your 98 octane pump gas is research method only. Ours is R+M/2. (92-94)

Yours is 92 at best. Go easy on the spark advance, on pump gas.

If you want to see how much power it can really make use 110+ unleaded racing gas.
Now you can put some timing and boost to it.

Do not confuse the two different tuneups.
if you are going to run it with a blower scoop on, get rid of the choke horns on the carbs.

Other wise the air fuel ratios will be a lot different when you are driving it with the hat on.
you will have wasted your time dynotesting . Tear down the carbs and do them right, before the dyno test. Cut the choke horns off and boost reference the power valves and make sure the vac sec system is A-1. It will run a whole lot nicer with the powervalves functional and properly boost referenced. Until that is done don;t expect it to drive nice. Expect short spark plug life and a bockey engine.
