(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.
Not sure what your talking about, I have had an inline 4 before that had a broken spark plug, brok it late one night putting it back together, other then runnig a bit rough and a bit underpower, it ran fine for 2 days until I got around to replaceing the plug.
