Need to revisit this question after you find out what is in the engine,...Carb to pan.

Because,...imo of course,...your shift points are too low and your trap rpm seems low also. I run stock cast cranks harder then you're running this thing. Even in circle tracks dirt scene.

I'm not always correct by any means,..and I may tend to run the stuff I am involved with pretty hard,...but it lives and usually runs pretty good for some reason. Well as good as the chosen parts will allow.

Probably ought to do you own thing and not listen to anything I have to say. There is a reason for my screen name on these forums after :roll:
