If you're ok with leaving XX% on the table, that's none of my business. I was making a general statement, nothing personal.

I don't claim to be super techy. My observations is that in many cases, when people try to optomize engines right to 100% capability, they often give up some reliability. That said, there's nothing wrong with that, especially in a competition world. But for me, my needs are not competitive so I'm more content with not worring about it. I just took it as you saying that anyone not optimizing 100% was doing it half assed.

All is good. Carry on.

I'll also add that my swap was done in 2007 which at that time was a little more rare. There are certainly more people around now that know more about it.
