a VERY DIFFERENT approach to porting

On an engine where getting air in and out quickly increases performance, I think you have to be an idiot to think restricting air will help and engine.

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

its not a matter of restricting, its a matter of optimization.  We all know bigger is not always better.  If it was we would all have 6" dual smoke stacks on our cars.  Its tuning (no not like imports like to use the word) but "fine tuning" engine components.  HP2G has proved to the world that improving the efficiency of EVERY part of the engine not only improves mileage dramatically but it also does wonderful things for power.  Its just a shame they dont want to share their research with the rest of us.
