Hi Stangman.
The smoking didn't go away after the dyno session was over. It starts smoking at approx 5000rpm and falls on its face at 5500.
Drivability on the highway and cruising is now alot better after I got it tuned.

Please have a look at this video.
Seperate O2 sensor in each header showing perfectly good and equal numbers.
Dyno operator didn't understand why it was smoking so bad. Could be soot and grime in the exhaust pipes and mufflers he suggested, but this video was taken about 2 hours into the tuning session so I would think most of it was cleared out by then?
Could it be yet another intake gasket leak? It uses some oil but I have an oil leak somewhere as well since it drips from the bellhousing.

I would recommend something with a modest port volume - go too large in cross section and you'll kill the low end and midrange torque & throttle response.  I would suggest a pair of mine - I am out of stock right now but will get more coming a few weeks down the road.  Otherwise a pair of lightly modified Edelbrocks will work well.  That tri-power is a bit of a bugger - - they look great but perform pretty soft.  If you can squeeze any sort of open spacer under the carbs - even a little one - it helps a ton.  Opening up the arb holes and adding larger carbs helps too...

The XE lobes made really good torque but they can be pretty noisy and fall off pretty hard after 5500 - not an issue in the big bird...
