we shift at 8200rpm's and after dropt 6500 and it flucuates arounds 6500 - 8000 range
motor seems to run fine

Make sure that the spark plug wires are a suppression type wire and that you have them seperated and they are not near the magnetic pickup wires of the 7AL-3. Also, where are you picking up the signal for the data recorder? If you are using the tach output of the 7AL-3, make sure you do not have to many devices attached to that point.
