>>>So the real question is whether ditching the AFM altered your spark requirements in anyway?
I think I might go with a DTA or similar system for full control.<<<

I'm sure the spark needs changed a bit, but not enough to preclude good results.

>>I believe you're right in that you've extracted at least 80% of the hidden power in our engines. The tricky part will be liberating the remaining 20%.<<

And time consuming. It's hard to get every last final fraction of a pony out of every cylinder every time safely in all weather and load conditions. And driveability is even touger. Mass produced cars typically have thousands of man hours of programming efforts put into their mapping. Dyno and street and track driving time is needed.
