I have a 68 camaro 396. Recently bored to 408, in the rebuild we used kiethblack preformance pistons, a comp cam 270 H and comp cam lifters. we cut the valve seats and valves, rebuilt the distributor with a Petronix Flamethrower kit, and besides that the heads have been ported and a set of headers attached. all that said im sure your sayin what could be the problem? but for some strange reason it wont turn over 4 grand. Any Ideas of what could be wrong?

I am with pdq, I bet it is in the linkage on the carb. I had to adjust my old 67's linkage to get the full throttle opened. Or you could check to make sure you did not kink or crimp the fuel lines somewhere and you are starving it. Is it popping or does it just seem like it is topped out?
