12/16 Chicken DT Jim back up to Hamilton Ontario Canada for a followup visit. anyone who hates dentist's needles, scalpels, scrapers, and sadistic dental hygenists as much as I do needs to visit Dr. Gabor Filo in Hamilton who (1) specializes in dealing with paranoia like mine (2) has the most pleasant and compassionate dental hygenist Jill and (3) has a $150,000 laser system that can painlessly remove not only cavities but also subgingival calculus! In the U.S. the FDA has not yet approved this dandy equipment which is also used in Europe and Asia, so if you must get your teeth cleaned beneath your gums in th U.S. you must put up with torture--or just drive to Canada and get it done properly and [nearly] painlessly.

11/23 Jamie Loson from Don's Polaris in Old Forge, testing the newest D8 flash with stock and with CPR twin pipes. wot fuel flow and ignition timing was no different than the earlier flashes, and could not see much midrange difference...so those who have the april flash should just stay with the PCV map you are using...and if Polaris has indeed added sorely needed midrange fuel you might note some midrange rich burble or laziness--then you can just reduce the midrange adder by 2-3% at a time until it's riding crisply. And as I predicted, those CPI twin pipes need CPR...results posted next...
