Well finall got to put the fairlane on the dyno kinda dissappointed it only made 445hp at the wheels at 4750 rpm torwue was better 545 at 3600 the motor is a 552 with super cobra jet aluminum heads that have been gasket matched to a 1231 gasket no work on exhaust 10.4 compression victor intake with a pro systems dominator intake has also been port matched to a 1231 the cam is a lem evans spec solid flat tappet with 260/266 @ .050 with a 636/663 lift the valve springs are comp 930 headers are 2-1/8 with 4 inch collectors the timing is 32 degrees thinking that may not be adequate jetting is 92x92 damn thing seems real rich wondering if bumping the timing up wouldnt help clean that up too what do yall think

all engines are different but I always set timing at 28* and go up 2* after each pull or pass and keep going up on timing until it slow's, then go back to the last timing setting before it slowed down, and I do jetting the same way up 2 jet sizes until it slow's down then back and so on and so on!!!!!!!!!! it does seem a little low on power to me, good luck with the tuning

92X92 sounds a little big to me.
