Mike, Tom, Crunch, and Tad in studio. Everyone made it in tonight, and it’s nice to have everyone back again.   Tom was in Florida again for the Toyota engine Manley pistons tests attempt number 2.  For those that did not hear about this, the idea is to test some newer piston designs under very high boost pressure.  Ring seal and piston structure get brought to the forefront when these engines are under extreme pressure.  The engine is on the dyno and going to put through hell to proof these designs.  That is what real world companies do for product…

Mike, Crunch, and Tad in studio.  Tom is attending the SEME show in Las Vegas.  We are not sure when (or if) he will ever come back.
