Question Cam timing/ high compression pistons

Has anyone ever mucked about with cam timing at all. I had an xd with a 4 spd manual and when i did the motor i skimmed the head and block, balanced it all. put 3.3litre flat top pistons on 4.1 rods, efi cam and 4 degrees of advance on the cam. With a standard exhaust and single barrel down draught carb it went like snot. It was good for 200ks. I usually ran on lpg so the compression ratio wasnt a prob. Has anyone tried any of this stuff on an ea ?
Ive got a 3 speed auto, anyone with a tacho tell me what revs you are at at 120 in second?

The following thread may be of some relevance. http://discussions.fordforums.com/sh...ghlight=timing

About the revs, I would estimate (very approximately) about 4000 rpm at 120 in 2nd. You may be able to work it out based on the specifications in eafalcon.com.
