Need to add some more fuel and looks like some knock might be going on there from 5700 on

Higher number= lean
Lower number= rich.


Example.
14=lean
11= less lean or something like that?

That depends , as a blanket statement no , if it is way lean then yes , keep in mind a leaner engine makes more power it also makes for burned pistons

Tom told me 185 was at the top of the JRSC. I dont really see anything about yours that should give you 20 more whp, other it being too lean, which can make more power, but will kill a piston. It shouldnt be that much though. Nice #s, would like to see it after getting the fuel situated.
