Tavi, reinstall the highest number / last tune Tom did for me. If you look at the xcal when you plug it in , scroll through the 3 tunes in it . And do the highest number. Iirc its 46 or 47. We did a lot of tuning. That's where Tom saves you a ton of $$$. Didn't Randy , say the tune was good , and didn't change it ? Or did he ?

Even then, I would close it up to .025. FI likes to blow the flame out.

Like a misfire , you want to run as much gap as you can till you get a misfire so if you can run .035 and no misfire then to it , more gap makes more TQ
