am sure this will be sorted when im off to the dyno and they plug in their lambda sensors.

any ideas ? i didnt pump the throttle. went to catch a couple of times but nout . all good from cold . just when its hot

expect the pv will neede to be changed .

If you wire in an ignition interrupter, that will help the hot start problem.

It works by allowing the engine to be spun by the starter, w/o the ignition enabled. Then after the engine is spinning nicely, the momentary switch is released allowing the ignition to become hot and the engine fires.
