Ian,

If the engine hasn't been used in a car before, you will need to re-jet the carbs, since you are now (presumably) running without the bike airbox and with different exhaust setup. You should be able to DIY this once you have the jets. The guru of all things bike-engines in cars is Andy Bates of AB Performance (01449 736633). Give him a call, and he should be able to sort you out.

Good news, Ian.
If anyone knows anything about FireBlade engines, it is Andy. And yes, he likes a chat :D

My previous kit car was a Westfield with a Blackbird engine in, and it was a hoot, so I think you'll enjoy the 'blade.
