      Based on final drive gearing and the normal redline of the engine, assuming the speed limiter has been disabled, it'll do 161 mph.

      It's faulty wiring to the throttle body, it tends to wiggle itself out with the engine vibration.

      Probably not, I had the same issue on mine right out of the gate, it's the wiring harness going to the tb, and it's just a smidge too short. Re-routing it gives it a bit more slack and keeps it from...

      One thing to check with new plugs, make sure they're gapped correctly, a lot of them, even though they say 'factory spec' on them, have the gap set too high, which will cause misfires, usually in the...
