Posted most of this info back in April- It's been slow and steady.

First question is what do you guys think about my cam selection?

Second is what size jets should I use on the 6 pack? I bought quick fuel metering plates but they interfered with the floats- so I hope they will take them back. The promax plates are a little expensive for me so I was thinking of running 65's in the center and starting with the stock plates (.071) and going the old school route- drilling them out in small incraments if need be. Any thoughts???
What's the lobe separation on the cam?

I would always start with the factory calibration when it comes to carbs in general.
Verify by CC-ing that you actually have 10.5:1 CR. If so then it should run well.
