To give you an idea, my current rotary engine has 3 injectors and 2 spark plugs per rotor (piston). The two spark plugs are fired at a given degree before top dead center (BTDC) and are generally spaced in firing by 10 degrees...but this can vary dependent upon RPM and boost (if there is boost) and load. The injectors are staged on rpm dependence, and of course duty cycle/load.
I just meant I've never heard anyone actually differentiate that they didn't know how to tune a piston engine vice anything else. I'm never around rotary guys, so it took me a minute to understand what you meant by that.

Usually you hear someone say "I don't really know how to tune an engine". That generally means piston engines, know what I mean?

What a great group of guys, and Ivy too! Dave and Randy really paid attention to detail on the SC install. Great product, took it for a run after unloading my Sol from the trailer. Boy you are right, 3rd and 4th gear really do accelerate. Thanks again Dave and Randy, next time I see you I owe you lunch! Time for a little rest.

Congrats DA. Yours had the CI long tubes correct? I know there's at least one of us that is very curious how that worked out. Did anything special have to be done in order to install the kit with your the CI long tubes??

Installation took about 6 hours. Dave took pics so he can send them along with instructions with the kit. Had to fabricate a couple of brackets. Probably would have taken about 5 if I would have kept out of the way. Should actually take about 4 hours to install the kit.

Really? My 2007 Sky has the stock redline at 7000. Are 2006 Solstices different?

Fuel cutoff is 7200 rpm and redline is 6800 rpm I believe on the stock cars (Sol/Sky).
