I am needing a little validation on a SBC build. I tuning on an 88 S10, and have a steady 8" of vacuum at 950 -1050 rpm. The cam is fairly large solid flat tappet. The specs are below. I think I am OK, but would like some opinions.

Eagle Crank
Scat 5.7 Rods
SRP 21cc dish pistons
Pro Comp 190 heads (milled to 60cc) bowl blended and gasket matched to 1206 (.100 long push rods)
Solid Flat Tappet 250/260 @ 50, 562/585 lift w/1.6 rocker

Give it as much initial timing as it needs- and it will want a lot (20 degrees-plus). Limit the mechanical timing to keep the total from being too high. Depending on how much initial you now have you might pick up a little vacuum, but the vacuum you have now isn't bad at all for that cam and displacement.
