We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I love watching all those engine rebuilding videos on You tube. The guys are always so detailed and sincere when they explain how to bore the cylinders with an overhead mill, and how to clean the block with your sandblaster, and how to get under the car with your hydraulic lift. Not many people have a machine shop in their garage. And besides, if I took an engine apart into five hundred pieces, I'd have to put all of it in a box, and bring it to the service station for reassembly.
I'm going to piss off a lot of Porsche owners. The problem is that this engine is a bad design. A good design from the standpoint of weight and power but a bad design in regard to engine longevity. I suppose that given what the Porsche engineers were trying to achieve that they made the right design choices and sacrificing reliability for the short term advantage of better power to weight ratio was not all bad. At least until you have to pay for the rebuild.
