    (RE-EDIT)
    Gentlemen and Brothers,
    After re-reading the previous postings, I see that I most likely "misinterpreting" the postings. Evidently I have the same material inside of my head, as the outside of my avatars head! "NOTHING"! :confused: :confused: But no excuses here, I have none. I "Fd-Up", and I would like to offer my sincerest apologies to "all" the persons posting replies, site members and outside viewers as well.:flag: I'm very sorry and It won't happen again!
    And "IF NOT" misinterpreted, "Screw It" I'll re-post it later! :D

    TheDeadOne or just "STUPID"!:confused: :confused: :confused:

    ???? Whats up DeadOne it looks to me like you know what you're talking about and I'm sure your input is hugely valued here.

    Yeah Gas you are right about the S&S IST ignition, good thinking - Dakota, might be something for you to think about. It has heat sensors and knock sensors and will automatically adjust the timing. Me and HDLarry are running this system and it works great. Its pricey though and takes up a lot of room. I did a how to on the install if you want to check it out.

    D have you thought of running a K&P oil filter as well? It'll help some with the cooling. And you can tell whats going on inside the motor when changing the oil and "cleaning" the filter. I use one and love it. Kind of dual purpose, plus looks good.
    Just a thought.

    Hey, also keep an eye on those plugs from time to time. They have a tendency to soot up during start up and give you a false reading from there on out. Need to check between new/clean to 30 to 50 miles to get a decent reading. :2thumbs:
