FYI, there are several of us vendor types that enjoy the reads of DIY, but 
are bound by customer/tech status when it comes to 'data'.  I don't pay for 
data, my customers do. Over the years on these lists, I have consistently and 
clearly drawn the line between offering guidance on a forum, and business in my 
shop.   If Hap or Mike want to share the data *they* paid for at ASW for 
instance, it is totally their right, they bought it.  I have never seen Mike or Hap's 
data on this list *provided* by ASW.  I find that a wise guideline. 

What I can do however, is prompt some of the less wallet-savvy to possibly 
collect their own data.  Although historically on these lists debates on how to 
interpret collected data appears controversial, without question, the higher 
the 'n' the clearer the objectives and conclusions.

I jumped on this thread, Gary, cuz I see coat-tailing 2000+USD mods with 
about the lowest 'n' data, with one of the highest HP:$ ratios.  Just advocating 
and proposing that an informed list/buyer, is a good thing.
