"Nearly 225whp."

By "nearly" you mean "80-100whp less," right?

Mine felt like 150whp, and I was on e85.

It just didn't make power, because it was just too hot. For those 2 minutes or less before it heated up doe, it was bliss

on a serious note tho: I really enjoyed the hotside MP62 intercooled 10ae I got to drive for a while, despite it being on aidz.....but don't tell anyone

Megasquirt doesn't make as much power because it doesn't have FIVE INJECTORZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

It's OBVIOUS, guise.

I hope Matt understands I know what water/meth injection does I was just trying to get onto the subject of injecting something other than fuel. I feel my comment served its purpose.

Steve in VC said what I was trying to get Tom to say, that a FFS system runs a legitimate AFR even with eCool. I hope he has data to back up this claim.

I loled at the Sharpie and the cease and desist order.

Megasquirt can run 5 or 6 injectors. It is just built by individuals bright enough not to.

Anyone have an ******* neighbor? We have been fortunate for many years with our close neighbors. Not much drama and a lot of tolerance for random stuff.

We have lived next to ******** for a while now. I guess he is getting comfortable with me now. Things come out of his mouth that should have been filtered long before they became a complete thought. I am very tolerant with him. He is a veteran and i have a lot of respect for all vets.

One day, he walks over and into my garage and starts talking. I dont know how we got on the subject but he says, "you know, our house is bigger than yours. It has the newer floor plan." I didnt even know what to say. K? They have 9ft ceilings and we have 8. Who ******* says that? That was a few years ago and he reminds me every now and then.

I have a neighbor who does something similar. She always likes to remind me and my brother that she owns her condo and doesn't rent like we do. I think it makes her feel better about herself on some level. I just don't say anything back because I have nothing to prove to her. She has a lot of other problems in her life and I just let her have that little victory. When she pisses me off I have contemplated hinting at the fact that I make more than her husband and her combined but then I would just be sinking to her level. I just remind myself that I am no better than anyone no matter how irritated they make me and move on.

It is like he feels the need to one up me on everything. "You know i used to own an automotive shop," says dick while i am outside wrenching.

For the past 10 or so years, i have snow blowed his driveway every winter when i can. He does thank me but whatevs. I didnt do it for that. This man served our country, it is the least i could do. This year, he bought his own. He came over the day after a snowstorm and says, "i heard your blower bogging down. Mine did really good." Dick trying to justify the little piece of **** he bought. It bogged down because i ran it into a pile that was higher than the chute, dick.

Lol my neighbor won't even snow blow past his property line to my driveway even though it's like 5 extra stepa, but does almost the entire rest of the street going the other way.
