OK. I finally got in a couple of decent passes at El Mirage so now I will have some data to build on. I ran 134 on Saturday and 136 on Sunday. Sunday's run was plagued by a miss and when we pulled the plugs there was oil on 3 of them. Rather than hurt the motor I pulled the plug. I figure I got what I needed so I'll get it sorted for Speed Week. I drove home happy.  cheers Wayno

Oiling plugs?   undecided

Glad you got the runs in, brother.  Salt Shakedown next month?

Wayno, if it leaks down ok, pull the inkake & see if it's coming around the intake gasket.

What are you running for rings?

Mark and I were talking last night about mapping EFI and ignition from scratch, which is what you're doing.

He mentioned that if you "rattle" the engine a little lean or with too much timing during dial in, with iron rings, you're more likely to break them.

Are all the oiled plugs on the same bank?

I'm hoping Sid is right.

Synthetic oil?  if so, did you run it in with regular oil first? 
Just stabbin' in the dark while you figure out what's going on.  cheers

Checking it cold is good enough to tell you "If" there's a problem & where it is without running it & possibly doing more damage.
And hurry the hell up Mate, we're obviously all hanging on the edge of our seat's here! evil grin
