Default feels like the flame is gettin' blowed out...

Some times when i get on it, the rare occasions that I do , both in low and high RPM'*, it feels like the fire is getting blown out. There isn't really any pattern to it, sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't.

I haven't checked my plugs yet, but any premonitions what it could be? I replaced the stock plugs with two ranges colder at WCBF 05, so it'* only been a coupla months.

With your mods, 'optimum' plugs and gap are an experimental issue for the most part. I'd bet that'* where your problem lies.

I change mine twice a year.

Sounds about right although I may bump the gap a bit I doubt he would be blowing spark out at .053-.055.

I have my 3.4 and DHP in and I have mine at .050[bit extreme], but havent under heavy "lead -foot" syndrome, experienced spark blow-out or misfire.
