That's about right in the ballpark for that combination.
I'm presuming the Rhodes Lifters were needed to make a "vaccuum rule" limit.

I have to pull 17 in of vacuum @1000rpm. I think I could get some more out of it with a spring change. It seams to flutter a bit about 5800. We shimmed up the springs once and it was better but I think somthing like a beehive spring would be the way to go.

That's some good power and tq. :lol: You are about at the end of what is achievable for the heads and a hyd cam though. The DOVE's are known to lay down in the high 5K rpm area.
