OK...I know nothing about 454's, this is my first....
I have a 21' Rochell Craft OB, Berkley JE, 454 Just rebuilt this thang, bottom end is stock as well as the oval port heads.
Mod's / upgrades during rebuild.
SLR Cam 218/228 .523/.532
Edelbrock RPM Air Gap Intake (already had a Edelbrock 750) / ditched the stock cast iron intake.
HEI 50K distributor / ditched the points / coil dist.
10qt Hamburgers Oil Pan
Timing set at 8 deg BTDC (don't quite know what the Advanced Vacuum is set at on HEI), plugs gapped to .045"...only getting 3k RPM's at 54MPH...is this all this slug will put out...?
Open to any and all comments suggestions and help...thanks in advance...!
I was doing better before the rebuild.
