162 page thread, go read!

Just to summarize, the pipe for it is the Go efra 2072 pipe w/manifold. P3 OS plug.
while breaking in add the extra shim, after break in change rod, and run .4mm shimming (remove the extra shim).
Use the break in method described here: "the engine break in bible"
"Heat cycling" method is the way to go, mine seems to be almost fully broken in, and it has run about 3/4ths of a gallon.
For tuning read the tuning bible "the engine tuning bible"

I liked the Go engine I bought so much, so I bought two more.
For the price, it's great.

If it was the GXII-5RHO motor you purchased, do not remove the copper shim.
This was done on the GX Series motors that had 2 x .1 copper shims. The GXII's have the alloy and 1 x .2mm shim. If you remove the .2mm copper shim on the GXII it will be under shimmed.
Run the O'Donnell 97T plug if you can. We find this the best option for all the GO motors.
