Default Problem????

I put a new sb 350 in my vette and I dont feel like its got the pickup it should have for 300hp. I thought about advancing my timing a bit. Has anyone had any similar issues and if so what else could it be and what do you recommend?

Default Adjustments

So I had the timing advanced and while under the hood noticed with the gas pedal pully engaged to the the floor the carb was not fully opened, adjusted that and it seems to be a whole lot better than before.
