It would? Oh.. I didn't know that. I guess a hydrolocked small engine isn't the same as a car.

It won't do nothing for me really.. or it won't do anything? Remember, minuscule gains are something to me.

I'm going to start a new thread in "Performance and Brainstorming" so I don't hijack your thread here.

Wow interesting, where did you connect the injector units for the alcohol/water sprayers at and how often to you spray the motor with it. I might be interested in doing this aswell.

Talking about two different things here. For maintenance, use a damn spray bottle!

My jet is inside my filter. It will be moving to AFTER the SC soon.
