Well, Bill,
It certainly looks like you are out to start a fight. Are you lonesome?  
bored? What?
You seem to think that just because Lon and I had a discussion the facts  
were not presented. I DID present the differences in that discussion.  So why 
are you saying that I did not?  This is accusatory and insulting  besides 
being wrong.
You said:
 "and we are talking here about removing the quench area you've so  highly 
and  "it doesn't make a difference"? "
This is another false and accusatory statement. You are completely wrong. I 
 never suggested that the quench area be removed when modifying the heads.  
Please at least get your facts straight.
In addition, I did give you FACTUAL answers to your questions. So I  resent 
your implications that they were platitudes. Maybe the answers weren' t  as 
long or complete as you wanted but they were factual. 
And as for advertised horsepower ratings, the subject being discussed was  
Corvairs. So of course that was the coverage intended. You may extend that 
to  all US cars produced during the 1960s, if you want.
Oh yes, data!! You want data of course!!! To that I say: "homework and  
research." There have been literally thousands of words presented on these  
subjects. It's up to you to do some research. The Tech Guide for example is  
available in two volumes, currently. So it must be in one of them. Why don't 
you  look it up?  Why are you asking me to look for you? Get the books you 
need  and start there. Do your own work.

Data,  Bob, Data -- IF it is in the Tech Guides, which one, which 
section, page  number, please.  As you have promoted, CR isn't the only 
thing that  effects combustion -- Tech Guide I, Fuel-Air section, pg 2, 
'Running on  Regular' -- and such things DO effect horsepower, and we are 
talking here  about removing the quench area you've so highly promoted, 
and  "it  doesn't make a difference"?  Could you explain, please?  On pg  
6, this same article advises, "Stay away from the open chamber heads if

Agree with Detroit-built automobiles, but  probably not "all" -- there's 
airplanes, tractors, locomotives (some even  made in Detroit) ...  And 
sometimes Detroit even has gone  deliberately low (still bogus) on hp 
such as in specific instances in the  Muscle Car era, and an occasional 
luxury car.

Probably asking for  Bob to hand me my head, but really looking for some 
factual answers here  and not just platitudes, as well as personal 
experiences by those who have  driven a smog car and then changed heads 
and driven it some  more.
