My intent is to give the best advise I can. If I frightened you I apoligize.

Recently your advise to another Pelican was "just grind off 20 grams to make a set of rods match. That's what you did."

After saying something like that, when no other qualified engine builder or machinist would do the same seems to betray your statement.

"A real guarantee is when you do it, you know its done right."

not sure if this is directed at me, but there is no sarcasm in my post.

To me a real guarantee is when it doesn't work right someone else fixes it for free.

You get that by paying someone like Henry.

You get the personal satisfaction (and possibly save money) by doing it yourself.

End of story.

Well like I say "works for me"" Henry and I am not about to spar words with you.
...Would like to make clear ,Never read the law book on physics that 20 grams is too much,
I do not have aGedi warrior to help me
A Yoda would be good too
And a force help full.
You are a great force full of brimming knowledge My pt is a P. eng.is just nuts and bolts and metal. Nothing more.
I like to encourage people to try it (fix stuff) not discourage. Is it not what this board is all about? That's what Wayne's Book is all about.

The professionals at Supertec are Jedi warriors.
I am Yoda (at 50) and the force is created by the synergism of all these parts.

synergism = cooperative action of discreet agencies such that the total is greater than the sum of the effects taken independently.

Although Porsche engines are not magic they do have a complex combination of challenges that only the most experienced among us can fully comprehend. It is not my intention to discourage anyone, it is however my goal to be honest when confronted with naive optimism.

Good luck to all who try.

This thread just go way to deep for me. I'm off to the Boxster forum to discuss color co-ordinated clothing and interior decorating.

Interesting reference> If you compare the Wright brothers efforts to the efforts of the DIY engine builder, you are doing them (the DIY) a disservice.

The flight at Kittyhawk was monumental but by toady's standards not very impressive.

I would characterize the efforts of the DIY on board as ambitious if not courageous. Most understand that they know very little and are asking to be taught.

"Most people don't learn when they see the light, they learn when they feel the heat."

I think that's the diff. there was no one there to tell them how,- they did it,- here there is lots of help......but one has to put forth the effort or nothing gets off the ground.
