For you people with high output engines: the higher the cylinder head
temperature, the greater the risk of detonation.  I'm not sure if qtc's have
knock sensors, but I've detonated a hole right through a Rabbit head and the

having, the problem isn't just blowing head gaskets or warping heads (as if
that weren't bad enough), but more catastrophic problems with high turbo
