We're not talking hydraulics, we are not talking incompressible fluids,
the gases in the combustion chamber are compressible. Though even in
hydraulics whenever there is a pressure gradient - even a small one in
an incompressible fluid, there is more than enough potential for flow.

Is this comment based on your view we were talking hydraulics ?
If there were only flow near the valves, how would the center of the combustion
chamber provide useful gas mixture for combustion or even have it exhausted ?
(rhetorical question ;)
I've come up with a thought experiment which should pretty well illustrate
what I perceive is happening with the greenfire plugs and hopefully will make
it clear for Adam Wade how it can work, it was actualyl easier than I thought,
provided he isnt just trolling and pretending not to understand that is, but have
heaps of other emails to wade through first ;-)
