Yea...do it quite often, and if you dont believe it, you obviously havent
seen some of the stuff we have...with nothing out of the ordinary on it..
You also forget that you cant get but so much out of any engine stock, due
to this little thing called volumetric efficiency..
If its commonly found on a car, then you cant have a patent on it, since
someones beat you to it...and from someone that was in , and still is in in
a way, the automotive end, I dont recall anything out of the ordinary being
slapped on with your name on it...and besides, with a patent, first, its
already online....and second, te reason you GET a patent is to protect
it..therefore, I have to agree with TS...the doubt is not in my court...but
yours. When you make a claim like that, you can be sure to be asked to shut
up, or put up in here.
if I give the patent # then people can look the part up online and how to
and do it in their garage. how would I know if someone had done it without
the only clue I will give you is that it changes the volumetric efficiency.
it is only good for engines that you don't care how long they last eg. smash
plans are in the works to have an aftermarket kit come out produced by a
(not allowed to say who yet)
Suffix codes that start with T from my knowledge were destined for Trucks. That
is probably why you can't find it in any online resource. Most them just talk
about the car blocks :).

I found TAX codes, but not T4X... I'll have another look at the engine
tonight and try and get all the codes off. Ah hell, maybe I'll just
pull one head and have a look - gotta get the stupid thing outta the
driveway and onto a stand eventually...
