That will work. You now need to check the timing and the air/fuel ratio and you should have a different vehicle.

Must say, it already feels a lot better than what it use to. It was " stuttering" a bit before I blocked it off... :salute:

Once you sort the settings you will find you gain a lot of power and smoothness at the bottom end of the rev range but it will no longer take off at 3 400 rpm as it is not getting the extra air through those holes.
