Other people understood the analogy in that materials alone do not make a strong engine.

However, my Z28 had 160,000 hard miles and it started every time.
I fail to see what your old Camaro starting has anything to do with an engines physical ability to hold power levels far past stock.

I dont need to google anything since what I know what I am talking about.

I was pointing out your wrong statements and incorrect conclusions.
I was also made an effort to be really nice about how I worded things.. and I am usually not. It is ok to be wrong sometimes and your ego should step back and let your mind lead.

It is obvious from your posts that you have little engineering and design background. There is nothing wrong with that but if you insist on arguing incorrect points about things you know little about then I am going to get annoyed and stop being nice.
