2. However, the Spica setup is a T265. (Tough to read but my friend with better sight plucked off the model) with 4 throttle bodies and the 4 port gray air cleaner that looks like it came out of a Panzer...
That would make sense. The mono-whatever was the poorest performing of all the SPICA setups. I can imagine the fights the engineers had with the regulators over that one. Anyway, the 265 would make for much better performance.

Sounds like you have the right temperament for working on a SPICA. They are fascinating and an engineering marvel. Set up properly they can be a rock solid performer.
