(I even maintained highway speed)..the rest is flunking tragedy.

inline fours can't do it. don't bother, it is all down or all up, variable valve bs aint even gonna help it.

a inline four diesel may get away with it if stroke is deep..like tractor four cyl, not rabbit deisel four cyl.
Do you have any idea what you're talking about?

I want some of whatever you're on, dude...
