I have a 73E rebuilt to 2.7, 9.5:1 compression and it pulls hard all the way up to 7 grand. You should start with the basics:

Timing? Is it advancing correctly? No rev limiter on your rotor?

Cams? You didn't mention but are they S spec? Timed right?

Fuel/air? You don't mention MFI? If so is the pump working right? Rebuilt to RS specs? Throttle bodies the right size?

Good luck, you should have a hell of an engine.
Thanks. The engine is a european 210 carrrera from 1974. This is exactly the same as the RS 1973 unit. So it has 'S' cams, MFI, correct throttle bodies, etc. The rev limiter is built into the rotor arm and is the RS unit.

Think I'll go through the basics. Just need to check out the way these should actually be so I'm not chasing a problem that does not exist.
