Are any of you running 20% fuel? I changed the deck height on the Evo3 down to 0.44mm, ran 20% with the 7 plug and got about 6.5 minutes of runtime and crazy power.

i run 16% , removed one shim, use the 2607 pipe and make 6 mins also. and very good power. i run the bottom end pretty rich, and top a bit lean, the engine loves it. te4mps are around the 260F dependant on the days weather.

You should not need to remove a head shim from the engine it comes set for 16% from the factory. That is unless you are 1500 feet or more above sea level. You will find if you keep the head a bit high you will gain some top end out of the motor. "as if it needs it" and it will soften the punch a bit. The needles are set right that is the way the IDM and for that matter all the Picco based engines like to run. Using 20% will allow the engine to live a bit longer and you will get better fuel milage with no questions. The number 7 is also a good idea if it is hot or humid outside.

My crude crushed solder method of measuring deck height may be a bit off, but I believe mine was shipped with a clearance of 0.65mm and I was originally running 30%. I'll have to try the 0.65mm setting again (2 thin, 1 thick copper shim) with the 20% and try again next time my track is dry but this seems to be doing well already.

Texas has some wicked humidity, over 80% most race days..

Yeah but that method is not that bad. We just like to see it in Inch not mm. For some reason makes it easier to remember I do not know why so do not ask!! LOL

Hey Jerry

Received my package thanks again and glad to be on the team. If my engine runs half as good as Dennis did in GLC I should be just fine. I have to start break in in the morning since I am just getting off from work so late. Hope to see you soon.

Dennis will you be at 301 ??
If so see you there...

The fast girl in our team is Daniele's girl fiend and she ran his engines at the German nationals last week for the first time. Serious punch!!

Although I'm sure her engines have been prepared with love

Soon, we will have the distribution for those in the team as well. Looking forward to it.

Default Nats

Thanks XSPower/Jerry for the awesome motors at the Nats. Motors ran flawlessly for all six qualifiers and were as fast as anything there. All six qualifiers were good enough to put me directly into the semi-finals and in a bump position until a mishap in traffic.............................next time.
