It used to be so fantastic, you used to be able to slap anything into google shopping for free and google had such a fantastic and well documented API that even I figured it out. Everything was there, or the vast percentage.

Whoever at google made that decision needs to be fired. They moved to paid model late 2012 I think.

Ah, OK

Still, my experience is that Supertech 9.0:1s are pinging at 200 kpa, and that's with a 50/50 mix of CA crap-gas 91 and 100 (thus delivering around 95). Currently running the car on straight 100 (ow) until I can pull the head off again (ugh) and measure the actual compression ratio. It's a month 'til the FM open house, so I'm not going to do that now. Of course, after that I'm moving and it's only 2 months til Laguna, so it may not happen til this winter. Sigh.

No, when I yank large amounts of timing it stops pinging, but 9.0:1 pistons should be able to reach MBT on 95 octane, and with my current motor it won't.

<p>Lol, all this compression ratio talk. And it turns out I can't even find cheap pistons in a 10:1 or 10.5:1. I'll probably end up with 9.5:1 supertechs.</p>

<p>Dammmnnn. Thats old school stuff. Wish I could show you what I just started on at work. The new scopes are epic. This one doesn't work yet. I'm taking it in tomorrow to do some debugging and figure out why it won't boot.</p><p>This is my day to day scope right now:</p><p></p><p>Little 2 channel guy.</p>

Heh, yeah, the hardware guys at work use scopes for 100Gbps ethernet streams -- I think those scopes cost about as much as a Ferrari!

Or more....I work on mid level performance scopes. I worked with some AWGs and those are upwards of 500k.
