Peeing further counts most.

Just haveing sensors dosen't make them WORK properly. There are a lot of fine points when it comes to sensors. Two systems, using exactly the same sensors, can work entirely differen't. Details count, a lot. As far as a good component, vs a bad one, you cannot tell by looking, they could even be the exact same component. If used properly they will work indefinately, if used improperly, they burn up overnight. It only makes sense if you KNOW what you are looking at. A 13 inch set of brembo brakes looks impressive, is impressive. If you use it on a 1900lb Honda, killer performance, on a 4500lb BMW, sucky performance. But they still look impressive.

Just like a good SPS rod bolt, vs an ARP rod bolt. You can't tell by looking that the SPS bolt is 40 percent stronger, and by the hype, you would think the ARP one would be better. A $25 bolt vs a $5 bolt. A real good $600 dollar forged piston looks exactly like a $5 cast piston.

An engine good for racing cost $30k up, an engine that looks exactly like it $500 for street use.

Your get what you pay for. That simple. Prices are NOT linear.

farther not further.

Peeing farther counts.

Sorry, my wife was an English major which makes her ultimately more qualified to attest to the intracacies of electronic fuel injection computers. While she agrees that MS is a gamble on the owner's abilities to assemble and manage the system, she also notes that some get it to work. Work well?! Who knows. Certainly there are more than a few that have cars running with MS. Is it as easy as slapping on an electromotive kit - no. Is it as reliable - maybe yes or no. Although the threads on the Tec3R are less than gratifying over the last year. The dudes running MS are grinning wide that it cost next to nothing when compared to Motec, but they don't have motec performance either.

Lets all be kind and end this so I stop getting emails about a recent update to this thread that really is just a few people that are too stuborn to recognize the valid points of others. We only seem to be recognizing the completely invalid points of others. That kind of action is what starts Jihads.

Snowman, 1fastredsc, do you guys want to start a Jihad?

I thought not because in America, we solve Jihad problems with Tritonal.

Well sort of, lol. Certainly had a few interesting distractions as of late as the languishing project kinda gives away.

Some of the better distractions are well documented on my myspace page, lol . .

http://myspace.com/tonyrawson

I was actually getting ready to get back into my project a few months ago since my life has finally stabilized, I've got some $$$ to burn in the bank and I was jonesing for some extreme acceleration.

Fate can be fickle though. Right as I'm starting to prepare all my porsche goodies for reassembly my daily driver, a Volvo 740 wagon, bites the dust on me so it was time to use some of that project money to get a replacement. Thats where my other distraction kicked in, my new S60R. Not bad for a family wagon I must admit. 300 horses, all wheel drive, active suspension, big brembos all the way around, lol.









Rather peppy I must admit but in a the next few months once I save up some more moola I will certainly be restarting my project. I'm also glad my daughter is now old enough to help me out so it will be a good bonding activity for us and she can also start learning some advance wrench turning skills, lol.

Sorry to leave you all hanging for so long but as you can see I've had a lot of distractions and live changes to deal with but I'm happy to say that life has certainly been treating me damn well lately.

Currently on the fence about the EFI solution and who to go to to get the head and cylinders fly cut and possibly even ringed so let the debate re-begin, lol.

Holy ****, I see this is still the most popular thread on the engine forum ever, lol. The suspense must have been killing everyone.
