hoping for a 14.2 at 158kmh. I advanced the base timing with the crank sensor and installed a BA XR8 cyclone air filter assembly.
The engine now revs alot smoother between 5,000-6,000 and hits the limiter with ease.
Last time I ran it it had 3,000km on the clock and very tight (cruel). The engine now has 8,000 km and revving a hell of alot cleaner.
Revving it 500rpm harder then last probably won't do much, but only time will tell.

Just found out that your engine lives and dies by your throttle blade adjustment. My flat spot was due to the blade being 1/3 of a turn out!!!!!!!!!! :shock:
I would be either bagging the rears or bogging down going nowhere. She picks up the skirts and flies off the line know. The difference it makes is incredible.

Happened to mine as well as a few others here.

Makes a fair bit of difference.
