Agreed, which is why I want to watch from the sidelines to see what happens and get some hard data and hopefully real life unbiased testing on an 80. I certainly wouldn't mind being a test subject (assuming someone can tell me this won't cause my engine to melt down) but I don't plan to send them $1K for some snake oil technology...

That would be if Robbie got "certified" and proved this stuff really worked
