My pops are muffled.

Also when you're changing the timing in the enrich/retard thing make sure you go PLUS 30, not NEGATIVE 30...go 5 degrees at a time to be sure.

Right- the function is to 'retard' ignition. So it you type in '30' it retards the ignition 30 degrees.

Finally got around to trying it and it does what I want. Ricer Sundays, already had one neighbour yell at me within 5 minutes.

Thanks for the setup.

How bad an idea is this for me to setup when I still have a cat in the exhaust??
How long will it last?

Your cat won't last long. EGTs can spike to 1700-1800 degrees under a hard retard event like antilag. Its also hard on everything in the way of the exhaust actually, valves included.

Your literally burning fuel in the exhaust... not long, like Travis said.
