Whatever chief - where is your expert opinion since you find a need to comment.

It is nice to see that we have mods that are not only adding to this being off topic but actually saying 'good one' NICE!

I've made my 'on topic' comments so has Willwren. It looks like we see differently... People can see each others side and choose which way to go if they ever need it do something like this.

Really? I wonder why they went to cast pistons in the Series II. Sorry for the assumption.

I think what'* happening here is a frustration level being achieved, and a subtle point being made (judging by my PM'* recently).

You are throwing an opinion out there based on hearsay, rather than basing your statements on your own experience. Arguing a technical point from shaky ground is a dangerous and pointless thing to do in the world of the Internet. It shows you as opinionated rather than experienced. This is not new in your posts on this forum, and I think there are a few people frustrated by it. The recent debate on FPR'* shows my point very well.

Bottom line:

You haven't tried it and you say it doesn't work.
I've tried it and I say it does work (with my setup).
SilverBullet runs one and it works for him too.

I think people can form their own conclusions on the subject at this point.

How can you assume that the statements you say are true when you haven't tried them? I would suggest you try to listen more instead of going about it this way all the time! My PM box is open if you feel this is wrong.

Willwren my chief comment wasn't said towards you so please do take it that way.

I have never said that an adjustable FPR would not work. Quote me now "an adjustable FPR will be able to raise fuel pressure if you need your fuel pressure raised." But since I have not used a adjustable FPR on one of these cars take that quote how you want to.

The comments I have said are common sense knowing how the PCM etc work. Ask 95naSTA how he feels about an adjustable FPR? But his comments are prob. not usefull because he has not used on yet.

Guys...

I think an apology to Derek is in order at this point. This has gone way past off topic from my viewpoint. Pm'* may be the better place to continue this discussion.

You won't know. He'* not a member any longer, due to other circumstances unrelated to this topic.

And my fuel trims STILL are perfect for the non-believers. Read 95naSta'* topic for an explanation. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=55135

Fair enough..... I just have no way to confirm or deny my theory of engine lifespan now.
