    I was pulling 5s when the outside temp was cold so I dread to think what it was doing at the weekend!

    See look, that's interesting. I've got REVO and turned up the timing advance to max level 9. Because I've got the large port head which flows better, I still wasn't getting ANY timing pull, even with it cranked up.

    So now running 2.25 degrees above the max of the map, and getting 2s and 3s which I am happy with.

    i can live with occassional 2s and 3s. i got the willys when i saw a 5 pop up when i experimented on 2.25*

    with 2s and 3s ive got headroom for "less than ideal" conditions. may even consider colder plugs. or i may just leave it lol

    That was what I thought, 2s and 3s I can live with. I did take it up to 3 degrees advanced and was seeing 6s then. Would of been OK, but rather not push it after blowing it up once already....
