Huda thunk it that this electronic doo-hicky is giving me more horsepower with a couple touches of a keyboard. I miss the old days installing pipes, reeds and jetting etc. trying to find that little edge over my buddies.

.. but clutching is still a combination of science and black magic - one day it will be all computer controlled too ..

I work with computers all day - and prefer that my toys are not all too computerized and complex

As great as they are, the worst thing about the turbos is that people now think a simple tune reflash is the be all, end all of modding.
Basic engine theory and performance still applies, unfortunately though, it seems to be completely overlooked these days.
