Stock 2bbl carb, stock intake & exhaust manifolds will limit rpm. If you're using all factory stock stuff, I'm surprised it gets that high. It would probably be faster sping 6000-6200 and cam'd a little smaller.

I can run a Holley 3310 750cfm, Edelbrock Performer and 1 5/8" headers. Spinning around 6200-6300 seems to be the sweet spot. Above that doesn't seem to make it go any faster. Someday I'll dyno it in the car and see for sure.

Just my $.02 though.
