After putting my fuel rail back on, I noticed some fuel leaking from one. So I pulled it back off and there was a torn O-ring. Since it was like 11pm and I had to go to work at 6, I decided to try and steal one ogg my wifes Eclipse(its down for the moment). It fit like a glove. So I investigated further, and noticed that not only was the nipple end the same size, but the plug too. It wouldve fit in my truck. That got me wondering....could you rape some off some car at a junkyard that is a higher performance stock motor? I havent researched flow rates yet, but does this sound like a plausible power gain? Afeter all, to get the most out of a freer flowing intake, youd need more gas right? other wise why have more air?

It's a really good book and well worth the $30.
I would have to agree. I just got the book and it is full of so much good infor I know I will have to read it a few times to really understand it all.

Engineer types are just kinda funny that way. :)
Hey Dick, you an engineer? Or learned about electronics the good old fashion way?

Good explination by the way on impedance vs resistance.
Really, so electrical? mechanical? civil? (scratch that last one most people around here would say there is nothing civil about you,... lol j/k) Just curious, I've been an EE for a few years now.
40 years experience, wow. I guess that would make me a rookie still. I have about 7 years experience all in the aerospace industry. I have done a few management type of roles but design is what I love to do. I know what you mean about making stuff. Oh and that whole corporate america thing (office job) is a little too slow and not hands on enough for me. Working on my truck/cars is what keeps my hands on craving satisfied. My girlfriend always says that she could never picture me in a white collar type of job. It’s good to see others in the same type of field with the same interest(hobbies).
Lol, that is exactly how I feel. The roles I have done are project management type of roles, team lead and so on, but only if I am the lead designer. If they were strictly management type of roles I would not take them. It is sad to say, but there are way too many people around here that “can’t do.” So there is never any drawback from my refusal.
