The RPM burbling.

I'm starting to think it may be electrical in nature.
Or maybe it's just the battery..

During this last round of testing around 3000, the lights went out and the engine died.
(edit: rather after this round of testing)
I fired it back up and the starter dragged but fired up the engine, lights went out, engine died.
I started it again, starter dragged, and there was a pop in the exhaust and the problem went away at 4100.
Still there around 5500 though.
