Hey guys, I can't deviate to much from the rules here. 20" Vacuum, Idle @ 600rpm, 2 barrel, stock 350 heads, single exhaust, 8.8 to 1 compression with a 308 gear. track is 3/8 - 12 degree clay. I am running a comp cams advertised duration is 212/218 @50 and 447-462 with a 112 lobe center. 1.5's all the way around. The thing won't pull above 4100 out of the corner. Ideas?? New Cam!

What trans in what gear are you running? Sounds like you may need a lower(higher number)gear.Maybe around a 6.20 or 6.50.

Had the same problem after an engine swap once. I had the wrong rotor in the dist. It'd run to 4200rpm and go flat. Easy fix too, after lots and lots of searching for the problem.
