You coulld also check your spark plugs. Do a pull in 3rd gear then shut your car off at the end of the pull and check your spark plugs. It should give you an idea whats going on in there.

Little meatal flakes on your spark plug means you are getting detanation.

you drive at 8psi without retarding you timing ? damn .. I used to have cooling problems at 5psi on injection control only ... I retarded the timing with 1 deg/1psi and everything went perfect .. so you decide yourself

most people don't run more than 5psi without tuning the timing
