Just dropped an Edelbrock Performer intake, and Holley 600 4bbl carb on the 302. Funny thing is, it ran like crap at about 10deg advanced, and the more I retarded it, the better it ran. Even seemed to idle a little faster in the begining.

Also brought the vaccum from 17in hg, to 20.

I'd have to say, the biggest difference I see is on the freeway.

Why would it run better when I retard it? Clockwise to retard, right?

Thanks
