20% nitro. I ran the engine and it ran great. Lacked a little punch but i think that was where my shift point was compared to everyone else. I kept up with them once i hit 2nd.

I think that you must go to 0.35mm total with 20% to gain some punch.

1. Since you have an LSN setting that is drastically different, you should be very careful with the head shim thickness. I personally would not run that engine with less than a .4mm thick head shim, but it's your engine. If you do go with a shim less than .4 check for signs of detonation - frequently.
2. you can get more punch by changing clutch adjustments and gearing.
3. What tuned exhaust pipe and header are you running?

I am racing the NR353 Tuned engine with a 2660 pipe and a medium conical NR header. Your MM should be a real power-house!

it does have alot of power. I dont want to max the power out of it. I want the longevitity out of the enigne. Id rather have the enigne last longer than trying to get every ounce of power out of it. I might have a 2660 pipe i have to look for a pipe. i think all my nova headers are the same i didnt know they made different headers.
