And here are the answers:
Los Angeles and when i was running it was pretty cool outside. For airflow the body i was using has about half the front windshield cut (lined up with the engine), both side windows cut, and a big circle in the back too.
Im running it at 1/2 throttle and blipping it . And its off the bench and running on a surface.
And they told me not to touch the needles for the break in so i havent yet.
