It first started happening on a track day but it could be because I'm now driving a lot harder as I get used to the car.

It's an '84 930 with K27, sc cams., 1 bar boost spring, Haywood and Scott twin exhaust (similar to B&B headers I guess) and Zucz powerflow airbox.

Any help gratefully received guys.
What do you mean exactly by "the electrics go dead"?
Do your headlights go out?
Do the gauges go dead?
Or do you mean the ignition cuts out?
