What kind of rpm's are you running? Your cam will have a set torque range and if your out of the torque range coming off the corner then your car will be "doggy"

what are you running for a gear and what do you have for a cam?

Here's what I run seems to work pretty well as long as I don't ***** up otherwise!!
Midwest cam #8
lift--Int-530--Exh--542
Adv.dur--Int--278--Exh--282
Lobe sep.--106 Timing at 36 deg.
I run a5:67 final top out around 6800rpm's
Hope that helps

Sorry I forgot to include that I run 1.5 long slots(were not allowed rollers)I use Elgin, I also use 100 thousands push rods. In case it matters this is a solid cam.
