    BUT you have the "electronics" and "settings" for a vin Y motor -

    that means you aren't/won't/can't get 300HP -
    So why does(has) the Eldo run so well with this motor not matching the brain?

    Re: Cam Question

    The difference should not make a difference in how the motor runs, but might make a small difference in performance and even that might only be slightly noticeable. Remember, we are not talking a huge difference here.

    the computer analyses all input -
    and "adjusts" the outputs -
    to offer the "best" possible running conditions -

    and like Ranger said - and the graph shows -
    there just isn't that much difference
    through the power curve of the two engines -
