Goran, Just to add to 356-930 post, my dizzy is a single port. From previous discussion I think the conclusion was it probably belongs to an earlier engine, and has a more aggresive curve. It hooks into the throttle body - but without removing intercooler etc, I can't tell which side of the butterfly it is plumbed into.
If it was the lower side - this would have a different effect than the topside?
I suspect it is the lower side - in which case I have the effect you are describing?
356 -930 - I'm not sure this is off topic - if it all relates to pre boost power - which was my original query. Given I have now found some fuel related power from 2000 rpm, I'm interested in what else I can find down in that range.
