have you done any timing. If you retard the riming it will roll more but you will lose some power. Other than that i would say maybe some injectors

The deal with retarding timing to give you smoke... That's a rather intensive operation, more so than what I'd call "temporary". And it is going to increase EGT's, decrease power, decrease mileage, and give you cold start-up smoke as well as under-throttle smoke, and may even result in hard starting.

It's like, if you had a giant banana (on a tree), and you wanted to show off the banana, so you cut the banana off (the tree) and tied it on your forehead. All the ladies would say, "Oh my, what a big banana", but you couldn't actually "use" the banana, because the banana would be cut off (the tree) and tied to your forehead.


You should be able to find injectors for $600 or so, right? Tips at least? I thought $800 was supposed to be able to get a custom set of whatever you wanted...
