So I have an interesting problem. After being down for a month, I finally got the new head put back in and have been driving around. The cars idles around 950, which is fine since Link is set to 900. For the first 5-10 minutes depending on driving style, the car runs fine. But after it gets good and warmed up, it starts misbehaving. The best way to describe it is it feels like timing is off. The engine goes from a smooth idle to a constant popping. The more gas you give it, the harder it studders. If you lift off the gas, it smoothes out until you're at idle. It only does this when it's warm. I checked timing cold and hot, and in both cases the marks line up.
