I know i was over the top on getting on his case, which he did not deserve. Typical bmw owners dont do the work themselves.For the typical owner I agree you won't need to disclose anything more... but as an engineer the lack of details of is one of the reasons I chose to leave the pump alone. I get your approach from a business standpoint tho.
Mr Six thinks there is a line of people that want to steal his idea, except overall there isnt enough market for me to care and go through R&D. A major developer or a shop that has budget (such as Lang) is more likely to buy his unit on the down low, copy, modify if needed and slap their name on it. Thats just the reality.
What he may be missing is he is marketing to more than diyers, but actual people that have to put their name and risk the labor redoing the job. At the end of the day i am making same amount of money whether its a new pump or a new race. What i dont want, is for it to bite me in the ***.
OP is an awesome MOFO for taking the time to do this. Even if it began as just getting his own car fixed.I would have preferred being made a tad more comfortable spending money with him that is all. I am sorry for string up all this $(&@ :wink
