Now you just have to see if it runs, and how well.

Just go easy on the boost for now. Roll into it and let the engine tell you when to stop.

It idles pretty well @ 650-700 eventhough afr'a are way off. It knocks under some load but it has torque, vacuum is at 5-6 but needs retuning have it limiting right now at 3,500 rpm's for safety. Have an idle video but something's wrong with photobucket.

So you moved moved the Int gear so you could go further ? At that compression you may be a little far but close enough for on a dyno and adjust properly

Yes I did move the gear. Never imagined that it needed thy much advanced but kept increasing 2 degrees at a time until I got that compression, next mark was the last and did not changed so went back. Tried retarding the exhaust 1 degree at a time up to the second mark but didn't like it so it stayed in 0.
