:twisted: That history may have started with Moses, but really very interesting to read!

There are a few historians that have made claims that the entire Northern America had at one time a race of humans that were giant in size. Perhaps it is true who knows?
I have to thank BigRam for posting about the article as it was very interesting to me.

As far as historic "facts" how are any of us really supposed to know. All scientist have is an "educated guess" on what really happened, and maybe old ass documents of stuff writen by people that none of us know how credible they are. We just assume that's really how things are.

Take multi vitamins for example, how do you know that those vitamin are really in them? Do you have some sort of tester to check?

Call me crazy or what ever but, I do like to see every point of view before I can go ahead and say I'm just goin to believe what people say.

I think I know what you may think you are saying. But I think you dont know what you were thinking you were trying to say.

That being said..... DOHC with a equal build will beat a SOHC in a straight line. from my experiance a SOHC will beat a DOHC in second gear coming out of a autocross corner due to slightly lower power band.

To talk a bit about SOHC power, at one point in time there was some guy that lived in Maryland that was hanging out with Gary Howell. I think his name was Mike, not too sure of last name, but he would post every once in awhile when Howell had a message board. He was running a stock bottom SOHC with a lot of head work done, custom made intake, some sort of ignition from a motorcycle, and stripped and cut up car that was reduction of weight and was right near the 13 second mark at some track everyone on that side of the USA would run. Last I recall, he was rebuilding the SOHC with higher compression pistons and going to run the custom grind crane cam.

But the norm is, DOHC has more adjustable adaptation to making higher HP.
