I just had the head off to lap a naughty valve, now that all is right and
tight, I've got 150# per hole.
I'm running 5deg static timing, with my dizzy altered to provide only 12deg
of centrifugal and 0deg vacuum advance, all in by 3ooo rpm.  That should be
a final total of 29 crank degrees.  I limit boost to 5lbs using my right
foot and an eyeball on the boost gauge, though I'm sure I boosted to 10 lbs
last night when I burned a new Toyota Matrix off the line.  Took my eye off
the gauge in the heat of the moment.  At the next signal he called over
"That's not a stock Midget, is it?"  Ignoring his semi-ignorance, I just
said "Nope."

Sadly, I can only find 91 octane.  Anyone know where I can buy better stuff?
