    Ok so I just finished with my install of my new engine, which is a 302 roller from Blueprint engines. What should I set the Idle Rpm to for this application, also I have the Initial timing set at 13 degrees, is this a good setting for the timing?

    I have to keep my 351 at around 900 with the cam i have ,but i have a comp cams 292 solid lift . It's a very rough idle . Try about 600 and see how it feels . A high idle can cause an automatic to creep if no stall converter.
