    For some time now I've been unclear on the exact flow rate of USRT's "415" Genesis injectors. I told Scott over there that this uncertainty makes it hard for me to know what to recommend when software calls for 440cc flow. Should the file be for his "415s"? Or for the 440cc Green Giants...

    While composing my most recent "name my race team" thread, it hit me. Why not have an official (if allowed by The Greek) or unofficial (if not) PW racing team? All that would be required would be a team name, and from there we could each design our own custom t-shirt on, or...
