Thank You F-Bird'88 for your insight, very useful info.
I'll get a set of the colder plugs and try them out. Thank You.
I do follow what your saying; it works great so just go with it but I like to know the why's as well and understand the technology and/or physics behind it; not necessarily to make it stronger/faster but just to understand the why's (as my wife would say; its one of those annoying traits that she has not been to find and rip out yet
). This is my first engine build (well, someone else built it, I'm just using an easy to work on truck - i.e. less variables - to gain an understanding) and I want to become more proficient when I get to my future ones.
Retirement is only 6 years away so I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life; which involves cars and restoration.
Either way, the help is appreciated.
So what does unshrouded mean?
