>damage to be apparent.  If it makes great power, excellent.  That's fine.
>But will it hit the seals?  He has yet to prove with any hard facts that it
>won't.  Yet other have come up with pretty good theories (can't call them
>proof because they did not have Nick's cam in hand) that say it will.  From
