Jh092,

The idle you're talking about (850 to 950) is for a stock motor, your mill is far from stock. My '67 El Camino has a modified 327 which idles nicely at 500 rpm.

The question is how it behaves at 550 rpm. From a stop if you release the clutch a little too fast will it stall or does it require extra gas to avoid lugging off the line? If it accelerates smoothly off the line without having to rev it first I wouldn't worry about it.
