Oh sure. But only when I'm first warming up the GT on really cold mornings.
After the first 30 seconds or so, I back it down to 5500 or so.
I ran the 150's on a full race (S4 cam) motor and

Triumphtune recommends the 1 3/4 inch SU conversion for GT6. Is this
unnecessary? And wouldn't a 2-litre engine that was equipped with a
header/free flow exhaust train begin to require the intake capacity of
a 2.5 litre (TR6) stock engine with its 175's? Inquiring minds want -- nay,
need -- to know.

don't go rich yourself, in corners or anywhere else. Dang.
