Jetting sorted Dunk S/P ran ok last year but a bit lean flat out So had to do the opposite of what I'd read :shock: When on full boost was the issue so had to drill main jets out & put small air corrector jets in till eventually I could get it rich

Great looking engine, but doesn't that throttle cable rub on the belts? :?

Thats good news,i believe COMETIC do a multilayer gasket for the v6,good for forced induction engines,plus you can supposedly reuse them a couple of times,think maybe BURTONS stock them.
