My '69Z just arrived in Tampa, FL from San Francisco. In Tampa, the car will not rev past 5,000 rpm. It lays down and starts to miss. The car was dyno tuned in California just before leaving and pulled to 6,200 rpm no problem. I did not, however, take the car past 4,500 on the street after the dyno test. We did jet down quite a bit on the dyno, so it could be too lean for the change in climate. I haven't had a chance to look at the plugs or timing yet, but I'm assuming they are right where I left them. Any thoughts?

probably the change in elevation?

air gets alot thinner high above sea level, and florida is about as low as you can go. lots of air needs lots of fuel.

i have never been to cali. and am not knowledgable of it's distance above atlantic sea level in it's different areas, but that could be it.

San Fran is sea level too or within a hundred feet or so... FL is way humid compared to SF and the west in general. So it could still be the air...

If you still have the old points ignition, change the points. You may have high point resistance.
