I can only assume you're talking about someone besides me, as I have
never emailed either of you directly.  I have REPLIED to email sent from
both of you, but that's not what you said or implied. 

I said the same thing to both of you, which I will post again here,
regardless of the fact that Bill inappropriately did anyways.

I never said CIS couldn't stand for constant idle speed, just that it was
very unlikely that when talking about "BOSCH K-Jetronics CIS fuel
injection system", it has anything to do with idle speed.  What does idle
speed have to do with fuel injection?

I asked Bill the same question, which he has not responded to except by
posting some rant, YET AGAIN with some evading point. 

Rich says that Bill was "Just pointing out what the acronyms mean
according to lit that he bought ...", which is absolutely WRONG. 

Bill wrote to the DML saying that CIS = "continuous injection system" is

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE.  It CAN stand for Continuous Injection System,
and is even specified as such in the Delorean Manual!  A correct comment
on the DML would have read "Some volvo literature says that "CIS" refers
to the idle speed system and "CI" refers to the continuous injection

I looked at Bill's amazing volvo pictures, and nowhere do i see anything
relating Bill's constant idle speed system acronym as used as an
adjective describing the k-jetronics. 


Bill, I don't care what message board you go on; if you start spouting
misinformation I WILL say something.  You have received more flames while
posting to the DML only because there are more people there that know
better and are concerned about the "information" you spread.  If you
continue to post "information" like this there, I can guarantee the same
results again and again.
