    Went out this morning for an early morning tuning session. Made a pass, checked plugs and made an adjustment. Made another and went to check plugs, and pulled the wire off without the terminal. After getting that sorted out, I went back to tuning. After about 2 hours of tuning, I took these videos.


    This one, I've got the secondaries hooked up and went full throttle. If I had rolled into the throttle, it may have picked up. But when I'm on the street and need to get on it, it's not there.


    And the only change I made in this video, is disconnecting the secondaries. I should've made a few rolling starts to show the kickdown, but it runs like a proper car without the secondaries. It'll squeal the tires if I hammer on it now, which is pretty cool.

    I don't understand the first video, you went to 30 kmh then slowed.

    I let off at 30 because I thought it was going to stall. I figured it'd be a good comparison between having the secondaries hooked up vs. not at all. I've put the stock jets and rods back in it, so the only change between the vids is removing the linkage for the secondaries.

    I think you need to adjust the secondary air flaps tighter

    Yeah, I was messing around with that last week. I can get it to transition properly, but then it's either surging with lean jets, or falling on its face with rich jets. There is no happy medium with the secondaries.

    Sounds like you need to talk to Ken or Mark on here, they’re the Q Jet experts

    Haha yep. I've got an idea of what I need to order, just waiting on the cash flow
