Are you using a steel 1 piece exhaust/intake manifold or the aluminum 2 piece manifold?

Both my '71 and '72 140's were notorious hard starters when hot, running HIF6's.

I believe as airflow/pressure/temperature increases, it's an exponential loss.
Though someone who did better than a C in fluid dynamics should probably chime in on that statement.

IMO, I'd run HS6's. Simpler, easier to get parts for, IIRC they actually flow marginally more air than HIF6's.

Then again, they're SU's so take the "better" one with a grain of salt.
