Damn, that makes me almost wish I went 8 port rather than K1200 16v. 

Loving the period features of that setup, much more character than a modern FI setup!

Or an old fag end that had just been disposed of with all that fuel pooling around the ram pipes and on the throttle slide

Sounds amazing but I'd be worried about the amount of fuel that its spitting out rather than burning at W.O.T. I'm guessing the cam has a fair bit of overlap ?
