But since the engine was virtually new when I got it and is highly reliable 
coupled with the fact that I can't even get all 240 horses to hook up to
the pavement, I have forgone doing any further mods for now.  Maybe in a couple 
years if I have to do any overhaul work, I will add a few horses!


P.S. That's Curry as in the spice ;)
