Re: '87 5KTQ performance trouble


Robert Myers pointed this out to me as well.  I can't say that I did
consider elevation but as it turns out I'm pretty close to sea level
as I live by Richmond, VA. so I think the +.1 correction is O.K.

Does anybody know how to adjust based on elevation.  This might help
those living closer to Audihala.

    You are correct about the static reading being 1.0 if you are close to
sea level. I imagine altitude can make a difference in this reading.
