To all who responded. I have about 45 miles on the car and have done 4,000 + in rpm range with no boost. The next time I take it out... boost for sure.

I am running (as mentioned above) non-synthetic oil from Castrol. This oil is not a blend of any kind and normal 20/50 weight.

The car has not puffed a lick of smoke since I have adjusted the mixture on the initial start. My fuel distributor was rebuilt and the car was very rich on initial start. Other than that, she runs great.

I will do some hard pulls (3/4 throttle) and then let off and let the car/vacuum slow me down. After that... all hell is going to break loose. I'll let you know how the SC cams feel and a fresh motor.

Thanks again!
