G'day all
i just got my self an EL XR8, and after comming from a 1979 subaru 1.6L wagan i cant really complain about the power.
but i am

i tend to get a massive flatspot but its not always there.
it it comes in around 3500 - 4000 rpm and doesnt go away.
thing thats confusen me is that it sometimes its not there, through trial and error i've found it dosnt depend on temp like i've been told.

i've given it a service and checked all plugs and leads, but that didnt make a difference.

any help would be awesome
cheers
