...maybe 8-10% for 1/2 mile. I was able to get into 4th (5 speed) and just
hold it at 70km/h, just
under 3000rpm. Boost was only 3-4 psi, EGTs around 800F. I pulled over, and
the fuel screw a 1/8 turn or so, and repeated. This time, I could do 80km/h
with about
5psi boost, and 850F EGT. Another 1/8 turn, and I'm now able to do 85km/h
6psi and
900F EGT. I am also able to see brief peaks of 8.5psi boost during WOT in
3rd gear,
and still NO smoke. This was near dark, so any hint of smoke would have
shown in
headlights, and there was none.

...So what happens when you now back off the speed to 70km/h?
Are EGT's and boost down on previous?
