John has the right Idea! We could put such huge expansion chambers on our
exhaust systems, that we should get a 20%+or better increase in power, and
sound no more obnoxious than the standard Chevy 3.1L corsica engine. Thus
more mundane applications, minivans(Bimbo Boxes, referring to the driver as
an airhead regardless of gender), Volvos(no offense TeriAnn) could be use
smaller more efficient engines to produce the same amount of power. Of
course the LBC set would use it for a straight 20%+ power gain! The only
question I have is, doesn't the car pollute More? I know that Honda had
emissions problems with its variable valve timing engine. Apparently, when
the engine used very high gas to air mixture, the SO2 and CO
concentratitions were higher. This contradicts logic to some degree. Does
anyone know why that is the case?
