Just installed au1671 profile into my el ghia(Hybrid) but not very pleased with the gain it has given me.
Does anyone have any experience with this setup?
Throttle response seems less.
Maybe I will advance timing a touch
Or maybe get the injecters cleaned.

did you maintain the correct cam timing??


find true tdc ( pull #1 sparkplug and put a screw driver in there, wind the motor upto near tdc and you'll be able to feel with the screw driver when the piston gets to the top of its movement)

once you know where tdc is, check the cam and ignition timing.. cam mark should be 3mm above the head on the inlet side of the motor IIRC..
