Re: Mixer Ring Orientation

I know this is slightly off subject but I still don't get why more people don't use the blos variable orifice mixers I find they are great I am using one on my 3.9 rover also I have another for my landy which is getting a 3 2 jag engine they solve the problem of the restricted airflow imo

Thanks Tom

Re: Issues with stag 300 6 premium
