As Ed points out, at some point air flow to the intake probably becomes a limiting factor in an L-Jet Spider as was the case in the 3L GTV6. But at what state of tune? 160hp? 180hp? Jason's effort may help answer that question.
I am running stock L-Jet with 10:1 (nominal) Motronic pistons and a set of Richard Jemison's cams in the '88 Spider. Recent tests confirm the L-Jet is able to maintain a wot AFR around 13:1 through 6500 rpm ... no lean mixture issues. Compared to Ed's and Jason's engines, my changes are quite mild but the car is much more enjoyable and for the first time in 29 years the engine likes to be revved above 5000 rpm.
