[DML] Re: Confused?? Not at all.

"My car runs better right after I wash it too.." (Message 72422)

Seems like a definitive statement to me. The word "psychological"
didn't appear anywhere in your post. If it was implied, I missed it.

I should have said your argument was "fallacious," not "flawed" --

My wires are black, BTW. Pretty indistinguishable from Bougicord
except for the larger diameter. Coil is black too, but it's hidden
behind a plastic cover, so appearance doesn't matter. I'm interested
in performance anyway, not looks.

"I run an aftermarket "high power" coil in 1860, I
think it is the MSD brand. I bought it because the
chrome looks cool..." (Message #72422)

Sorry -- couldn't resist.

It indeed is great to be back. #5939 lay fallow during my extended
unemployment. There was no time for it during my recent
overemployment. Now I'm unemployed again. Lots of time but no money.
Oh well.
