coby - 'any suggestions on this? w/ my KB, my throttle response is
still very touchy, even w/ the 65mm TB.

that's exactly what i mean - with a NA application you're trying to
increase the engines efficiency in being able to "pull" more air in -
the engine is simply an air pump - the more air you can breathe, the
more power you can make - so with a large CI motor like that, you
don't want to neck the TB down too far.

>Yes, I'm running an EEC Tuner calibrated for larger injectors.

i would highly recommend the tweeker, but mike glover (owner) is down
for the count right now having just found out he has diabetes. i
consider the EEC tuner to be a very close second. join the EEC tuner
list too - you'll learn buttloads of info.

agreed. stay away from the 24 lb injectors - a TON of people have a
hard time getting them to run well - something to do with a strange
fuel curve or something. in any case, they're not enough for your
motor anyway - you don't want to take your injectors up to 100% duty
cycle - it gives you no leeway at all for a partially clogged
injector, etc.
