You sound like a wealth of knowledge. Just a minor correction though, she was not his partner she had purchased the company from him.

One thing can be said for KE....his track record spans 30+ years and no one individual in this sport has been to the winners circle like he has. This goes for racing and product development.

Pfaff is on the edge of development, and has been consistant, not in and out of biz......if you invest in an aftermarket motor, you want the biz to be there if something goes to S H I T. Will KE be there next year?

PF is definetly a great engine builder. However, I would bet KE has him beat 10/1 with National/World Championships. When they had the Class 1 engines KE developed/sold electronic Kinsler type FI systems, oil systems, valve covers, bell housing coolers, exhaust systems etc. Last two years they had open class Drambuie made the switch from Sterling to KE and reversed their loosing streak vs Alcone till Alcone left for UIM. Even today, check out his serpentine belt drive, look at the builders using his water pumps, fuel logs, oil pans etc. PF is excellent but not on the same page as KE
