this cam does not get budy till 3000+ rpm. It will have a lot more grunt if you lock out the distributor timing curve. Set the locked timing at 34 to 36deg BTDC.

11:1cr is too much cr for pump gas. thats why you can only run 32deg timing.

The increased idle and low speed timing will really help with this cam.
if it will only take 32deg than you will have to settle for that.
Should have built with lower compression. 10:1 for pump gas.

16deg base timing is going to really suck with that cam.

100 octane unleaded Sunoco GT260 is what this motor needs.

the motor will like a locked fixed timing, with that cam.
The idle and low rpm throttle response will be a whole lot better.
