    At least it isn't a BOAT (Break Out Another Thousand)
    ... or a FIAT (Fix It Again Tony)

    don't be a aircraft r&d machinist. leads to never ending projects like this one. always trying to improve. advice is to stay stock and never have issues.

    do you know what mfg r&d stands for ........ Make a F'ing Guess, Run & Disappear.

    I love that one, oddly enough never heard it before. D'ya suppose that was one of those behind the back snickers we were always almost hearing? I just knew we had something in common. I'll second your advice. (pretty obvious I haven't been able to follow it, but I DO have an "almost" stock 300...)

    jim,
    doing the 2xv6 altered has its issues. my wife says just 1 v6 is good. no way. i say being r&d, failure is not an option. we kept going until it was right to go.
    i will keep throwing 'rocks' at it until i get it right. AND then we have the 350 with all the quirks from doing what it wasn't designed to do.
    now imagine if i didn't do all this weird stuff. :D
