    Mechanically inclined or not just about everyone gets greedy and gets a set of pistons learning the curve. Or over does it on the rack screws and puts faith in a behind turbo pyrometer and melts one or gets a pump due to the rack bar catching on the scroll gear. Or blows up a couple turbos before they figure out you can’t pound the piss outta the throttle then back off to downshift in a hard pull then pound it again. I say nothing is better than a well built mechanical with the right mix of parts set properly. However they still are not an electronic big bore CAT.

    That "WHOOSH" you here when letting off too fast lets you know when you screwed up. Ease off and ease into it.
