Anyone looking for a great builder I highly recommend the following.
For CP products dealers I would recommend:
Arlan at LED(site sponsor), Pete Schemberger at Hybrid Engineering, Mat Shearer at Shearer Custom Pipes, Dennis Packard at Packard Racing, and Nate McCoy of McCoys Peformance.

Other great builders I also would recommend: Neil Prichard, Jerry Hall, Bubba Ramsey and James Dodge.

Kevin Cameron talking detonation  http://books.google.com/books?id=wHSDST9VvU8C&pg=RA2-PA18&lpg=RA2-PA18&dq=Harry+Ricardo+detonation&source=bl&ots=x3frPOE8Dg&sig=LiQFN6u8wOhL6W_0dHNoqmUbGoI&hl=en&sa=X&ei=rNRHVLHQBceGyAS7lYKwCA&ved=0CCsQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=Harry%20Ricardo%20detonation&f=false

This article has a very good explanation of how detonation occurs and why it can destroy an engine in a matter of seconds if it is allowed to continue.  I would recommend everyone that does not understand the process Kevin Cameron described, to read and re-read the article until you do understand.  The majority of the heat related piston failures are caused by detonation.
