Default Installed a starting line enhancer engine sputters now

i have installed a Biondo starting line enhancer everything seems to be okay but as soon as u hit the enhancer botton it does what it shoud do however the rpm drops and start to stutter and then when you apply the trans brake it gets worst and when when the t/b is released it goes into a bogged now if it doesn't backfire thruogh the carb it will get its act togther
and takes off. if I the wire from the sfo terminal on the mega box is removed(causing the ehancer not to work ) and leave just on the t/brake it works fine. since i will be heading to bredenton this week i won't hve time to figure it out any i dears? if your headed to bredenton or palmpeach i'd be happy to have some one to look at.

I bet that Peter Biondo will be there and certainly help you set it up. That is a good family that stands by there products.

Question, when you stage w/o the SLE hooked up, what RPM are you staging at? You may need to adjust the SLE so your rpm is up. I have mine set when the enhancer goes down it is at 1600 rpm. I am on alky. Idles around 1200 rpm.

We've ran into this a few times, usually a few things. 1. make the SLE come on earlier so it has time to clean up 2. adjust the carb, the SLE can casuse a good carb to do this. I've seen it a bunch, usually a bit lean at idle. Its on alky I'd think ?

When the enhancer is off, what RPM are you bumping into the stage light at? Your 2 step rpm shouldn't change with or without the enhancer on the car.

i'm on my way to Palm Beach a fellow racer offered to take a look at it he thinks is just a minor adjustment. I'll give you the heads up when I get back.
