Without looking too much further glowing extractors/manifold is a sign of running too lean 8-) (or too hard! :lol: )

fuel pump NEEDS to be changed. i dont this conversion with my mate on my car before i bought it.

also make sure all your intake pipes are attached to something, of you remove the hose that goes to the rockercover pcv valve the rpm jumps up to around 2000rpm instantly
