    You are the complete package; you know the scientific fundamentals, and you have put them into practice with not only practical diagnostic and repair knowledge, but a brilliant mind for tuning. You could probably have written my book, 'The Motorcycle Fuel Injection Handbook', yourself. Email me; maybe we will collaborate on something!

    You really understand the theory and application of combustion science, and you know how to tune and tweak for top performance. you have enough background in diagnosis and repair to get you by, but you're really all about charging bank to make fire-breathing racing and custom machines that bite way worse than they bark. You're savvy, knowledgeable, and respected in the tuning field. And with good reason. Let me know if you're ever hiring. ;)

    I guess Im not too worried about the "Performance" part. Most of the time, I just gave my truck and keys to the dyno shop and said "Here ya go"....

    Well Chris they called me an "Old Hand". But the questions were a bit goofy from a technical standpoint aimed more at modifying versus practical and real world applications. I'll post my ASE's. That matters in the real world of repairs. :)

    Can I get a boo-ya. Some of those questions were worded weird though. Not to brag but I though I did better than that. Esecially on performance.

    As far as ASE's go I had (they expired) A1, A6, and A8. These are no where near worded like ASE question, but to tell you the truth the ASE's seemed a bit cheesy on some of their questions too.
