Glowing headers usually means it is either way lean, or the timing is way off. Sometimes though, on a test stand or a dyno, there isn't enough air moving thru there to remove the heat from the headers, which can make them glow a bit.

I would look at the timing first. Maybe the dampner is the wrong one???

Did you degree the cam?

Engine dyno or chassis? Either way that combo should have made way more power than that.

What's you guess as to what you think your compression ratio is??

And yes, double check timing and carb. setting...

If it's not a new HEI make sure the advance tower isn't frozen (very common problem)

I think mr oger might be onto something....excessive exhaust heat usually points to retarded timing....
