The car is not a turd because you missed the cam timing by a degree or two. The stall is not perfect still no big deal. wrong cam? maybe,depends.might be the wrong one for you...definitly not a cam I would ever use.
No one thing is the problem.The problem is everything as a whole package.
What we are going to do is follow Painted Jesters lead.make do with whats here,put some miles on it and plan for the future.
Its going to improve,just be willing to work with painted jester.He has amazing patience.
