Hey MA racer, I would chek the deck height with solder and see where your at first before doing anything with the shimming.After knowing that, you can see if your to high or to low. I sauly run anywher from .021-.024 in my stuff with 30% in Houston. If you need ant help just ask man, no problem.

is the following correct?

the SL3 MF and standard version (older max.12) is a torque engine

the newer Xl3 is a rev engine

is this correct? also, is there a MF tuned version of the XL3 out yet?

what are the other differences between the two engines?

From what I was told the SL3 is a long stroke and the XL3 is a short stroke. Supposedly the XL3 only comes tuned from MF!!
