Yeah I've learned that after that thread and some research, which makes quite a bit of sense compared to how I thought FPRs worked, hahaha.
Yeah I'm happy with the tune. I just need to get Webers or set up ITBs and EFI before I build out the motor as I don't want to run that close to lean on a high compression engine, even when it is just cruising around. Though I do wonder what a day at a track would do to the plugs in terms of fouling...
Parts came in!
A new dizzy cap and rotor as mine are a little scorn, then a cheap furl pressure gauge so that I can set the fuel pressure more accurately for now. I also got more 5/16 fuel line to re-do the lines in the engine bay so that everything is set up properly. That will hopefully happen this weekend, all I need are some brass fittings which my local hardware store didn't have.
The AN fittings are for my plan to re-do the entire fuel system. I've started buying used fittings on ebay to save money and will do so over time. Sure they're not nice and shiny and new, and they could use a quick cleaning, but they work and they're a whole hell of a lot cheaper. Plus they add some character
Here are my rough parts plans for everything left that I need to buy. Since typing these up I've decided to go with Jiffy-Tite quick connect fittings to connect to the carbs so that I could remove them easily should I need to clean them.
The prices are of brand name (Earl's, Russel, ect.) fittings on Jegs and Summit Racing. Then the line is a rough average as I still have to decide on what line I want, at least if I don't find some nice used line on ebay.

Hopefully I'll be able to save a few hundred by buying used fittings. Either way, It'll be fun collecting all the parts I need over time!
Also a friend of mine did some photoshopping:
He also sent me the photoshop documents with a few different versions and I think I'm going to get a banner printed. We'll see if this happens soon or not, but either way, I do want get it made up.
This spring should be a fun time for the build!
