Check PencilGeek's dyno database, and you'll have an idea about what people are doing to their engines to get more output. The rest is really a matter of searching on specific mods.

This was a far too helpful and professional response, lucid. You need to get into the spirit of the weekend.

I'm still stuck at the office...what's your excuse?

I'm exhausted and can't focus on what I need to do so I'm screwing around on the internet.

The OP is all too inviting to the tongue in cheek comments I must admit.

I too am having trouble closing out a long and tiring week and am procrastinating in an identical fashion. I believe the OP sensed this fact and is baiting me.

I'm quite sure of that. I have few things running that need to finish and keep bouncing over here while I wait for them to stop running. Oh, and we've got a problem with bees over on the air scoop thread guys (a thread that took a similar turn this afternoon...guess it's been "that kind of week" for many of us).

Meh, don't worry about it buddy. Like I said, folks are a bit punchy given it's the end of the week. Like Lucid said, everyone means well.

The problem is my week is not going to "close". You know the cycle; you put more time in thinking you'll get stuff done, but you get tired instead and are not as productive so the additional time you put in doesn't mean anything, and then you get all frustrated because you put more time in, etc.

I'm right there with you. I've had a couple of months of that, and I've determined that I will just take the weekend off to recharge.

Most efficient? 150hp shot of nitrous. Instant +100lb-ft of torque.
