I wish, lol. So far I've gotten it to 12.72 @ 107 mph. The cam is pretty mild, and the heads are too big for the relatively small cubic inches, but it is just a fun street car so it certainly does the job! I wish it was a standard, but I'm a student and budget is tight (hence the mistmatched cam/heads etc, all of the parts I got used.)

Trial and error is one of the best ways to learn, and as you said now you know where to vent, so as long as you keep moving forward instead of back you're
