    Recently I did the oil block off, cat delete, and wave eater clips. With those basic mods she should be good to go

    Wave Eater clips keep the retainer pin in the power valves from backing out. It's a must on that 66v. Some will argue that premix is a must also. I always ran the OE injection. While exhaust is off for D-plate install, check oil lines for good fit on all carbs, especially far rear cylinder. It tends to come off and if it does, that cylinder will pop.
