Thanx for the tips! Pretty sure I got to much cam to be cruz'in the boulevard in fifth at 1200 RPM. I'm thinking that Im expecting to much power(torque) at the low engine speed, giving me that lopey movement in the drivetrain.

Whoooa, I see I lit a fire in here.

I agree with Kultulz one hundred percent, I use a propane torch opened slightly and I move it around. Since it is regulated already it is very safe, The worse I have seen happen is the torch gets accidently lit when it meets a spark (cracked spark plug wire). The volume flow is so low that accumulations are hardly a concern and with the vehicle running there is air movement anyway.

A simple propane torch is all I use and so does most factory shops I've been to, as for calibration it does take a special regulator setup to do properly. I have never used one because a simple propane torch works just as well although not nearly as scientific.
