    Good point, which I agree with completely. However, I'm sure I'll have pin-holes in LOTS of other places first. I have 260 gallons of untreated water circulating through copper coils, rubber hoses, PVC pipes, and through a titanium exchanger. Corrosion is inevitable, but that's the nature of prototypes. I learned years ago that prototypes need to be cheap and disposable, so that's how I build them.

    If it can't be sealed up with tape, then it probably just needs to fail sooner rather than later. LOL

    LOL ... it's actually more like an "anti-turbo" ... naturally aspirated at it's purest form. Each cylinder has its own throttle body, like most motorcycles.

    I think I might have the only 2 drive-by-wire Hondas with ITBs (in the world) that pass OBDII inspection, and I've been daily driving them for years (without air filters).
