Agreed.

In addition to what the others said, the VX cam made my 87 feel pretty gutless around town and I think even at higher rpm it wasn’t much better. If you advance it a few degrees it should help improve torque, but I’d be curious what you thought of the engine if you had the same camshaft in it to compare the rebuild on a more back to back comparison.

While you had the motor apart was definitely the best time to shave the head and install a thinner head gasket. If you’re up to doing it again, it needs to be done if you want more pep!
