my cam card says:
opens 5 atc 44bbc
closes 29 abc 10 btc

where do I set my timing at? It seems to run better way above the timing tab. The tab only goes to 12.

your cam card has nutin to do with ignition timing, that's valve timing....cam specs.
Even stock motors are generally happy with much more than the factory spec'ed initial ignition timing, and it doesn't surprise me that it runs best "off the pointer."
Problem is, when you increase the initial setting, total timing increases as well, and you really don't want total to exceed 36 degrees or so.
There is lots of good reading here on this subject, try a search perhaps?
