edit: Dump the turbo. Go back to a free breathing engine like the Aston-Martin.
Turbos have advanced a lot since then. I have almost no turbo lag.

My turbos are under warranty for another 20-30k miles. When they shit the bed I will upgrade them to stage 2 or 3 getting me in line for an 11sec sleeper w/ full interior as I run the AC still getting 21/30 mpg.

When you add scientists like molecular biologists or particle physicists that number probably does go down. I'm willing to bet it is still a large majority.

So what is a "real scientist"? Are you including frauds like Ken Hamm who has a BA in applied science but pushes the completely unscientific idea of young earth creationism?

While you're at it you just made the positive claim that 97% of "real scientists" and climatologists do not agree with the idea that global warming is real and primarily caused by human activity. OK, what % do (or do not) agree and where do you get that number?
I wish I knew how to make a macro that would just type this all out at the touch of a single key:

https://www.skepticalscience.com/glo...-consensus.htm

https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...lobal-warming/

30,000 Scientists Reject Anthropogenic Climate Change? =False

https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

Surprisingly enough, Wattsupwiththat and Jimmyb dispute this.

Skeptical Science sends out over ten thousand surveys with only two-questions, gets only three thousand back. And that two-question survey that over two thirds of climate scientists who received the survey blew off is the source of 97%.

The entire 97% is based on a sham two questions survey that only 25% of scientists queried even bothered to respond.
25% is a pretty good response.
But you would have to understand statistics...

And if he had read my links he'd know how wrong he is, again.

The study you are referring to does confirm the other findings but one would have to be willing to go outside their safe space of Republican approved messages to see them.

I understand what a two-question survey is. I also understand that three thousand "climate scientist" are not ninety-seven percent.
