Thanks Aerohead, your comment was extremely helpful to me. I chewed on it for a while because I didn't want to have to re-do my kamm, but ultimately when I followed our advice I realized I would need to. You can read about my process here. I still need to post some better pics of how I adjusted it but the results of optimizing it correctly have more than paid off in the fuel log. Thanks!
