The single springs in the B2 work, but issues happen with different operating pressures within the converter. Things like flat spots, hard starting etc. It is here that I get a bit lost, :? but I believe that GRA put a lot of effort into researching the best operating pressures for the B2

BTW, it is best to mount the converter flat on its back, that way you don't get flex in the diaphrams due to cornering or braking forces.

AFAIK they use a standard B2 converter. Well That was what they were using when I inquired.

What setup are you running John, twin TB or something?
Twin convertors on a 6 sounds like overkill.

i can only assume you're talking about the balance line, which is connected to the airbox lid.
only the idle mixture jet is connected to the ISC.

are you running GRA? if so what power is your car putting out?
