They did a test in one of the magazines on this 720 hp version and all they had to do was retard the timing slightly. I don't remember how much but I think it was on 2-4 degrees. Motor ran fine and still made almost the same power.

This shouldn't be to suprising. Alot of engine builders set them up at 11:1 on pump fuel being 91 oct.

Now that's the proper use!

Maybe I should swap it for the 3.0liter in my BMW330i.

I just pulled out a very tired 468 inch BBC with 12.5:1 pop-tops.

Can you imagine that Beamer with that much power?
