RE: 2002 - No More Turbos (Trionic)

In high school, for a Westinghouse project, I made an engine with a peak
on the piston dome and a side electrodeless spark plug. The sprak jumped
from the plug to the peak. Worked very well. A year and a half later, I
see Saab is using the idea. Don't know if they got it from me. A brief
report I saw seemed to be almost word for word.
