    Well, it appears I have problems but we are trying to identify where it is.... Got stuttering and what feels like a mis-fire above 5.5k rpm.. Investigation will continue. May not even be related to what's been done

    That's annoying pal, is it still off the road then?

    Did they measure what duty cycle the 330s were running before fitting the 550s Craig? And if so, were they lean to the point of dangerous?

    Nah no measurements taken, just changed over and then mapped. Need to get the car back into the garage to get looked at. As I say could be something else is broken rather than this work causing it.. Car runs and is smooth until you get up in the rev range
