Cam is not advanced. I did degree it when I installed it to make sure it was correct as well. I'll try the tighter valve lash to see if it helps out at all this weekend.

I agree, tighten up the lash, makes the cam seem bigger to see if the engine wants more duration.

I looked up the head flow on the Enginequest web site and on Stan Wiess' independent head flow site, and I wouldn't expect them to be the cork, the #'s look good.

This is a real head-scratcher.
