Yeah,

Paul Yaw is excellent. I sent a customer to him to do one of the modified Nikki carbs he used to offer and the guy is extremely satisfied.

There are so many factors that go into the peak hp #s. There are race cars putting down 230 plus to the wheels with mostly stock Renesis motors (Ceramic seals, engine management, intake, exhaust). A car like that is too loud for the street but also has no port work. It's hard to say, we haven't done any tuning of the stock computers and probably won't be. I like both what Racing Beat is offering and is 'capable' of offering for tuning these beasts. Rick has been working with MOTEC stuff for the last 10 plus years exclusively so that's what we would use if we were 'breaking in' a motor on the engine dyno.

Paul.

Just remember that the more money you spend on an engine, the fewer horsepower you get for each dollar spent. The largest gains are the cheapest ones. The last few can get very expensive.

Well now. When I hit 100K miles on my 8, I know EXACTLY who to call. Heck, I may take a US tour just to get to that mark quicker!!!!

I don't know much about rotaries, just from what I've learned on this board, other rotary sites, and trying to learn my 8 in and out. But I've learned enough to know you guys are dang good at what you do. I'll be talkin with ya at 100K (and with my commute to work and back, that won't be too long from now).

Here's some other neat stuff. We did some work on this motor for a customer who I won't mention because I may not be at liberty to do so. Some of you know who it is.

Why are you focusing on 100,000? I'm setting at 82 right now, and 100 isn't too far down the pike. And she's purring like the day she was born.

I am living proof in the existence of God. Everything that I am passionate about I am blessed to be associated with including wonderful friends. I am a very thankful man. If anyone here sees me with a big smile on my face for what appears to be no reason, now you know the reason.

Paul.
