Interesting aside I learned while touring the Porsche factory. When Ferdy and the fellas were
developing the big motor during the cold months, it would hit about five grand and then stumble
and get worse. They checked and rechecked everything and could not figure out what the problem
was. During the "last" run, one of them became disgusted and went outside to get some fresh air
-- as he open the door, it helped itself open and the engine took-off. The problem was it was
sucking all of the air out of the room. Grain of salt and all that.
