Could you mail me one of these engine's piece by piece so I can put it into
one of my projects.  I am now a diesel convert, F the american public who
thinks diesel is noisy, dirty, and lacks power.  Our company has an 8000lb
van that can over take most cars and gets as high as 24mpg.

Like Jim pointed out the S2000, till you rev it up you don't hit the power
band.  I don't remember what the Porsche book says my shift points should
be, but I know they are high.  Something like 5th gear at 80mph which puts
the revs at about 4k.
