When you get all of the bugs worked out, you need to develop the kit and sell it. I will buy one.

>Finally the rain let up for a Sunday and I was able to get out for a mileage

>averaging 60-80MPH the whole way(mostly 5th gear). Final mileage was computed
>to be 28.2MPG. I found out I love earplugs.
>Cold starts are good, idle is excellent, power is great and my plugs were

>electric fan and still the temp stayed below 165deg the whole way, even when
>doing extended stretches of 75MPH. I'd have to say the project was a complete
>success. Now the only thing remaining is to check the stability of the

>properly to changing condiditons of temperature, altitude, humidity? Time

A better way to Internet
