    It might be a caveman solution, but you can file a taper on stock-style pads. Only takes about 60 seconds per pad.

    That's probably a good idea. They very slightly are connected at the common passages for the cold start/idle tube but not by very much :)

    You might also consider a switch to blow-through and add...

    Now that's pretty darn organized! Is this an Island Twin Turbo conversion?

    I would probably look to run a single boost control solenoid, to lower cost and reduce points of failure.

    Steaming the foam will help. On mine the bolster-bar pockets were not optimally sewn. My pass side has the eyelets on the bolster bars pretty much touching the zip ties/washers.

    It's worth cleaning the flame trap & ensuring PCV isn't blocked before figuring on replacement of the rear main seal.

    Rear main seems like the first place excess crankcase pressure is noticed. ...

    Do you have any other modern electronics, like a USB phone charger for example?

    Some of these things have such poor noise control they can reduce your ability to receive radio considerably.

    Whoops, re-read and saw that this is when holding throttle steady but in a no-load state? Or is this when cruising?

    I still wouldn't be concerned. It seems like having such an overall short...

    Kjet will lean out off-throttle as the meter plate closes. If everything else runs correctly its probably a lean misfire during a no-load condition. Itís a little unburned fuel igniting in the...

    A Jacuzzi will get foamy if the pH is too far off. And what is a cooling system if not a terrible little slimy Jacuzzi?

    I ran a 700w Kicker amp in that same spot for about 12 years with no incidences of thermal shutdown or other heat-related issues. Class D should fare even better.
