+1 on what he said and you may never really get enough power from the engine to be a formidable drag racer.

You're born, you take S**t. You get out in the world, you take more S**t. You climb a little higher, you take less S**t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what S**t even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake son. ~Eddie Temple
