	For the 3B engine, this is a sure sign of something
	wrong -- but usually something minor (I forget what
	the most frequent offender is, but I'm sure other

	elsewhere. I've seen 1.8 occasionally, but not
	that often.

	At any rate, you should take care of it, just in
	case it's *not* a minor problem ..

	Higher altitudes will give you more lag, but same maximum
	boost (within reason). Since you're at sea-level, it
	should not affect you.

	Tritec doesn't sound very familiar with the 3B
	engine, IMHO.

	Good luck -- it's a fantastic car!
