    if you're going to keep stock limiter of 12.7k rpm I'd recomend setting it around 107/107, tell your builder to set them at 107/107, put the hg on and measure ptvc, then take min ptvc out of it and you'll know exactly how much material to take of off the head.

    107/102 always worked well for me

    do the .020, just finished 07 with .050 hg and .015 deck, set 08 race at 110.5, stk. ex.at 106.5, stk. ecu, hitting 12500 rev limiter still climbing. will soon retime to some more moderate lobe centers in the 108-105 range. should be about right for this particular engine.

    I ran mine at 110 and it did the same thing, at 107 it picked up some midrage power and peaks right before *******

    Ok, great to hear some suggestions. What sort of rear wheel HP numbers are you seeing? I run VP MR12. Also, are these numbers good if I run a 40 shot on it, or do I have to change them? Sorry about the questions, but I am new to the idea of nitrous. Thanks.
