[DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.



The guys that want to stick to NOS stuff and claim it's better than 
what was in their car have a point!
Nevertheless don't argue that those NOS parts are equal to modern 
performance technology. Proof? My car's parts (except for the coil 
were replaced 2005).
Yet as for today I still find better (improved) responses of my car 
and a better mileage than before.
That's not only due to the coil that has been replaced but also due 
to the better wires.
Don't tell me that NOS cables wll perform better than cables ith a 
far lower resistance. Don't argue that NOS coils (28kV) do better 
than Flamethrower coils (40kV).
That's not argueing, that's sticking your head in the sand and 
believe whatever the gospel tells you.
If you do not believe what other people (positively) experience it's 
not worth the time trying to convince you!
If you want to know what your money returns you in improvement and 
you do not believe the rest of the world, toss in your coins and test 
yourself.
Even if John would go for it and do the dyno himself, I'm sure it 
would be money down the drain as again you would ignore that and say 
the results were "coloured".
Keep sitting in your sheltered corner while the world moves on!

Welmoed.
