Sorry about the OT, but..
Sounds like he's been a good friend to you. His post came off different to me. I realize that racing and engine building is a competition people want to win. Therefore of course they don't want to give away their knowledge. And if you're in business you don't want to explain to people how to do something - you want them to be forced to buy from you.
If you don't want to help people, why post? Just to show off is all I can come up with, or try to drum up business. Bottom line what I saw, self serving and arrogant. Not helpful.
Also, if you know the answers explain them clearly and simply. I really dislike BS and complex answers to questions generally are just a way to hide a lack of knowledge. I don't pretend to know much about building Clevelands, so I rarely post. That particular post just bothered me too much and I had to reply.
