now that a few guys have had this engine for a while, can anyone tell us about the longetivity of this engine. im a little confused. it has run the SA states, it has run the WA states, it has done a club day. now after 5 lts of runnertime fuel, im still a bit worried to lean it out, each time i go to start the engine its still nipping up first thing. once started its ok for the rest of the day. i finally got somewhere close to 220F and have heard some reach the 270F mark. there is more performance to come , but while its still so tight i havent pushed the point yet. wondering if anyone else has the same issues, its not really a problem.
