I love how most of the new fuel saving techniques being used in gas engines are adaptations of things that diesels have either always done or been doing for years.

direct injection and undersizing with a turbo being the most prime exaples.

it's all good. probably gonna bring in a spare from home next week. need a better keyboard, plus i like the apple chiclet keyboards for whatever reason (and i have a spare from when i worked there)

pop test, as in determine what pressure they open at... because they're suppposed to be around 150psi... the injection timing is partly controlled by the opening pressure of the injectors. basically old mechanical diesel things... which reminds me i need to adjust my valves soon
