Re: [DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.

Welmoed - What you have done is exactly what I am trying to convey.  You
took out old, original-equipment parts and replaced them with something else
and got an improvement.  

I don't doubt that you got an improvement.  

What you have not shown is any improvement over NEW original-equipment
parts with the parts you put in.  Who knows - you might have put in brand 
new original equipment parts and got 30 mpg on that tankful instead of the 
27 you measured.
