Some months ago, Chris from TurboKraft was so kind to lend me some advice on what to do to get the most out of our engines.

Here is what he said
Quote:" When we are after the "most" from a car, we spend an extra hour or two on the chassis dyno playing with timing values and the vacuum routing -- sometimes cars start and run better cold with the thermovalve in the breather cover, othertimes not. We'll adjust timing, do a dyno pull... If too much timing at idle and just right at revs, we'll play with the internal springs, swapping for ones from a domestic V8 distributor rebuild kit.
It is possible to really get it dialed for awesome acceleration, power, and civilized starting & idling."

Hope this helps
