Yeah, you're right Rich, let's get drunk first, then
maybe I'll give you some tricks on how to make 500 HP
with your good old 3B engine :-)))

More seriously, I know what I know and I *will* talk
but to a certain extent only. I have paid lots of
money in order to learn what I now know and I can't
give away my knowledge for free, however, I will still
keep on helping people out on these lists understand
how their engines work, what they can and what they
can't do and so on :-)

I hope you can understand me,
