      I'm glad YOU'RE having so much fun. Personally feels like
being nailed
      to a cross sometimes. I even receive hate eMail off Forum!
     
      What blows my mind is people give ME so much crap for *TRUE*
      statements, then let obvious errors slide right by without
comment:
      -Lowering compression increases HP (normally aspirated engine)
      -Tach redline indicates point of maximum HP
      -A small engine with high HP numbers will out pull a large
engine with
      low HP numbers
      -The optimum time for ignition spark is at the threshhold of
detonation
      -Engines do not produce vacuum
      -Octane and methane are the same molecules
      -Coil voltage is immaterial to mixture ignition
      -DeLorean underbodies are not made of plastic
      -An on and on and on
     
      Wow, what a blast from the past.
     
      If anyone comes up with an emoticon for shaking one's head,
PLEASE
      post an example. It will become my new signature.
