Hi folks.  Ordered the 83 GT new.  It was a 302 in NJ at Englishtown street strip, best was low 13s at 102.  Then ordered up a 351 for my 40th bday just as I moved to Denver.  The car was slow and it sat until last month.  I asked a friend to 408 it and try for 11s so that is under way.  I am  less hands on now and hope to transfer the garage time to track time this summer.  Time to live, taking guitar lessons too.  Is there no end to joy?  I enjoyed reading some of your posts that came up in searches.  Now it's time to join you all in the garage.  More stuff, just quit my 35 year computer job to go back to college.  Lord still lets me run a couple days a week.  Happy New Year, well a few weeks ago.

Is there a 4 - 6 - 8 cyl setting that may need review?

Not exactly, but relevant settings have been reviewed.  If the EEC thought I had a 4/6 cylinder I’m sure I would have serious issues. 

Car is running great with the A9L2, but I need to dial in load before I can dial in fuel.  Shouldn’t really drive it until I can do all that, so this RPM mismatch sucks.

What Dennis said. Mine were heated and slightly bent in several places. They are ready to coat now but I want to test. Next time I have engine out we will coat.

I wouldn't have any big tube header coated until after they were checked for fit in the car.

Thanks for the info.  I didn't see any coating options.  Did you have your coated?

8.2 deck shp dart with TEA 240 highports. Headers were CPR headers. They all most looked identical to Dennis's Accufabs. Headers are 1 7/8" tubes with 3 1/2" collectors..right side fit perfect ,right side little massaging.

I'm going to spring for some new headers soon.  I may go the same route as you.  Few companies have options for high ports.

Save me some reading; is your block still 8.2" or did you go bigger?

Posted this on EFIDynoTuning, but didn't get any replies.  Tuning is at a stand still until I can get this resolved.  Any help is appreciated.

I went for a drive to take some logs for dialing in FN035. The RPM (NE) in the log appears to be lower than actual RPM. I let off ~6500 and the highest WOT RPM my log shows is ~4900. My shift light did come on and it's probably set around 6500. The highest RPM in the log is 5100.

I took two logs and the RPM in both seems off.

What could cause the RPM to be understated and what impact would that have on the engine?
