So I'm now ready to go and set of the carb - on the road with a camera looking into the carb and a wideband lambda to see whats going on with fuelling. However I could do with know what is a safe max IAT... I have a thermocouple fitted in the outlet of teh supercharger and it would be useful to know what is considered to be a max safe operating air temperature. The pistons are 'standard' flat top oem spec. CR is 8.2:1. Distributor modified to limit max advance to 24deg (as per other thread in this forum). No intercooler fitted as the SC is bolted straight onto a manifold at the rear of the engine.
Is there a rule of thumb that if you go over a certain OAT you should increase fuelling by a certiain amount? Or is there a point where I should think about doing something funky like water injection?
