it's a shame though as these are ment to be good reliable engines but so far they are not living up to it's reputation with this engine.
And how am i going to last my 20 minute final or even my 5 minute qualifiers when i am pushing it.

Yes i did concider a tz but i thought for a club engine it should cope with it as it's not being in long finals and it's not being pushed to it limits it should have been ok. And the TZ was only $100 more then the techwell but know i have wasted my money on it there is no turning back.
So i think after this engine there will be no more techwells.

Yeah it was gettin hot.

I wouldn't say it was a mistake but an experience, But know i think i will stick to better quality engines.

My engine is at the momment going quite well with the diffrent fuel so i will give it ago this race meet (again) to see if the fuel worked.

Using the fuel in the 20 minute Final worked and wasnt that hot except it could have been better tuned (not enough low end) but i have got that done know by using diffrent pipe.

So i will have to see what happens.

I noticed that your engine has improved ementsly with that fuel and pipe change didn't overheat once whist beating the o.s, nova and STS. i bet you think diffrent about your engine now.
So i guess there is no more BBQ with your engine
