If anyone else has any input let me know.
Reed valves are awsome in how they can improve just about everything. I am waiting a new motor for my mill/Lathe combo to start building/repairing some custome mods such as a backup booster jet engine. I have built some pulse jets in the past the cool thing about pulse jets is that they are completely free of moving parts and sound really dam wicked. once i get the new engine ill be experimenting with some reed valved jets. ;')
