Re: old technology
Coup - re engine cc's for performance didn't F1 teams somewhere in the Lotus years have the options of either 3000cc asperated or 1500cc
charged engines? so there is a substitute for cc's
Hey you also had a V6

In actual fact engine diagnostics is even older - but it was called a mechanics ear

Ralph - I agree and unfortunately its now necessary we are told that the electronics are necessary to keep economy up and emissions lower, besides controlling all the other creature comforts we can't do without
Yes if only they'd reintroduce the Moggy like they did with the Mini.
There's no denying that engines do run better with fuel injection though. In fact I think my Escort was the cheapest car ever to run . it'd break down so often it never got to do much mileage so running costs were minimal
