That one should work out pretty well for you. I bet you're happy with it.

I'm gonna be a whole lot happier when I'm driving it! 😉

It definitely has some sweet rumble...needs some fine tuning still, but right now finishing the body/paint work is the primary goal...

That cam will probably want at least 15* and possibly up to 18* of initial timing. I don't know where you're at but I thought I'd at least mention it.

Sneak in there when he isn't looking

But yeah, 10* is fine for a stock cam but won't cut the mustard with that 268. You'll like what it does to your start-up and throttle response. It'll make the carb easier to tune as well.
