A little off subject here - but...
My thought is that anyone who is serious about engine building suffers from being
"passionately addicted to a sickness
At least that is how I feel. And that is not a bad thing. And I am lucky enough to call this hobby my "job".
Now with that said - It takes a whole lot of science - and even some guessing - a lot of skill - patience - fortitude, etc to put all the science into art form.
What I mean by guessing is "trial and error
". There are many things we may try, that haven't been tried before (or at least not that we can get any serious input about) that make us better, and make our engines run better :hopefully:
I am with others though, saying this is one of the most difficult jobs out there, (thats if you really care about what your doing)
