We don't hate ya. Congratulations on your first engine. Now you can spend the rest of your life trying to build your "BEST" engine.
Horsepower? Well..... not much i'm afraid.
First rule of engine building: "there is no substitute for cubic inches"
Second rule: "power-adders are your friend!"
Third rule: "be rich. this is not a poor mans hobby"
( That's all for now. Good luck )
