yes, i am paying him to agree with me.  If you agree with me too i will
pay you.  Just agree that lowering compression increases horsepower and
your trip to the darkside will be complete.  I never said that advancing
will always lead to HP increase, though i will say that advancing (until
knocking!) will in most if not all cases lead to higher PEAK horsepower.

Ah, so you don't agree with my interpretation of martin's website?
Interesting that you won't comment on it, but continue to claim that you
are correct.  message 9744.  It basically says that you misinterpreted
what was on the site and are still wrong. ;(

Is this at idle or at peak hp?
