    Direct Injection vs. Port Injection

    I think I understand the advantage of direct injection, injecting into the hotter compressed charge increases charge cooling and permits higher compression ratio. If correct, why also port inject? All flavors are out there. Mike

    Trailer - Need Recommendations / Advice

    OK, you have my attention. My limited research to date indicates that additional length comes at 100#/ft in an aluminum skinned steel trailer. So 400# for 20 to 24 feet . All that I have read indicates that you want 10-15% of gross trailer weight on the tongue. The same balance on a 20 or 24...

    Is gt40's important to you - let us know your thoughts

    H, Beautiful work! I have lots of questions. First, on the front "hood". Did you lay up the return flange on the movable part before you cut it loose? The hinges look OEMish, what are they? There is equipment installed on the left side of the splitter forward of the wheel, can you tell us...
