and the P6 turbo plug is a good plug to break it in with.
i've succesfully got the engine to idle without the glow heater on...i did lean 1/4 turn the low needle....
just fyi i am trying out the method used by josh cyrul that i read somewhere in this forum.
b4 this with my previous 2 engine which till now is still race capable, i use the idling break in method .
with this new method ( which i am still half way through) its opposite of the idling method. instead...after u warm up the engine a bit u can start with wot/wide open throttle for the 1st too the 4th tank with rich main needle setting....
up to this point what i've found out with the rich settings the engine can barely scream cause the extra load of fuel coming in...
signing off 4 now...after i finished the whole process i'll give an update on this break in .
