Thank you guys, very good info. I don't expect to take a class and walk out and be a pro tuner. I just finished my first motor build, went through hell and back, but thanks to a few people I made it out a live (for the most part).
I like to gather as much advice as I can before I mess with things I don't completely understand. Everything i know about mechanics has been from doing it right and learning or doing it wrong and learning.
