Vacuum test results
I put an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold on my 73 2V motor, along with their Thunder Series 650CFM carb. The intake was a bit difficult to get lined up while installing, so I was nervous about getting a good seal.

So I went and bought a vacuum gage today and took a running reading... A steady 19 inches of vacuum. I was impressed.

That is a really good vacuum reading.

That is a pretty good number. Is it a stock cam?
