Yeah, I wouldn't mind being around to see potential problems with cam
changes.  Nothing like learning on someone else's car ;-).

I had the exact same problem, and that's why I bypassed my boost
solenoid.  I leave my switch on premium in case there is a difference
in timing, but I can't tell a difference.  I'm sure whatever your
problem is, is the same as mine.  I always figured it was just the
solenoid not working...

Glad everything went OK.  Later...
