Good luck, I hope you get the bugs worked out of it

I'm using a digital timing light so can see the exact rpms and degrees on the gun itself..

This week has been shit. Crazy busy at work and my primary hard drive took a shit monday, i'm hoping to have time to reformat it and reinstall windows this weekend..
