RE: A blow-by valve installation procedure (encore)

Net result - that Jetta, that you've just blown away
on the strait, is somehow back on your heels in that corner.

Hmmm...I'm not sure whether to take that as an insult or a compliment  8^)

Now, if you slam the throttle shut_AND_dump that extra air out of the closed 
sys, the fuel, that has been metered out to match the dumped air, is still 
remaining in the closed sys. Boom! You can get an enrichment spike with a 
rather cool potential afterburn in the exhaust. Looks good on TV, when I watch 

those rally tapes. Not sure if I want to have it on my daily driver, tho.

Of course, you could always go the more direct route, like Max McDonald.  He's 
got a switch on the dash that cuts out the ignition but keeps the fuel pump 
running.  Spin the engine up to 5k or so, hit the switch, and BOOM!  Instant 
flame thrower.  Great for tail gaters, but that's gotta be hell on the exhaust
