    How did you stroke your car today?

    So disappointing. That sort of crap only reinforces my low opinion of some shops. They should have told you what happened and given you some compensation.

    I’d expect 13.8 V once things are stabilized. Higher voltages are ok for a short while. But I usually see low 14s on start up. 15 V for a long time seems excessive.

    I almost know that feeling. My nearly stock '92 is parked with no insurance while I figure out what to do with it.

    2 questions:
    1) how long are the pins ?
    2) is the theory behind the design to resist the bending moment on the cylinder from higher piston side thrust (with boost)?
