    What car did you run in front of to get an X5?
    I bought it from the same shop for 6k with a rebuilt title. About a month after I bought it, there was another car crash (not caused by me). It was fixed there. Then I complained when I had the check engine light. That was when the oil issue occurred.

    Now I'm trying to sell it for 5k.

    Also, it was a joint car, my mom wants to have her own BMW (7-series, I really doubt it'll happen). And to get her out of the car, I told her about selling it. That's one of the many reasons why I'm hellbent on buying a Supra.

    That's not that bad of a deal. Did you see the pictures of the wreck it was in? I'm always scared to buy a rebuilt car probably stemming from the Galant that my mom purchased in Florida with a Photoshopped CarFax sticker on it. Turns out it has actually been totaled 8 times, and shifted like a semi truck.

    No pictures, all I know is the guy fixed everything that went wrong, bent frame, radiator was dead. You just can't sell a car with a title like that for much.

    My accident was the stupidest thing to ever happen. I sat at a goddamn intersection with a median beside me when a white grand prix goes 60mph into my door at sideswiping angle.

    if you need a reliable car, don't buy a supra... trust me... unless you keep it all stock and baby it like a granny.

    Surprising that 38's wouldn't effect anything. What gears does it have in it already?

    Turbo'dddddd.

    But I'm thinking of going to a supercharger and staying around 300Whp.

    You may get more out of a turbo, but they aren't super reliable.

    Do you live anywhere near Cleveland Ohio! I would be down for a race!

    Are you using a stainless or cast manifold for your turbo bro?

    I had to go to cast... The torque mounts allowed the little D15 to flop all around so after essentially shaking the turbo on the end of 4 steel pipes for a while, two of them cracked.

    Changed to a cast manifold and solid mounts and now no troubles.



    On topic: The other day when I was putting my cast manifold on I realised the oil line was about 2 inches too short.

    Japfeiffer was there and swore up and down it was my intercooler hose (which is a rubber 90 degree elbow) was the thing holding it up. Here I am, one new oil line later running the same hose, which fit perfectly might I add. Nice and snug, no strain on my IC piping at all.

    I was in Auto Zone one day, and the guy in front of me was asking the help guy, "How may spark plugs does a 2002 f250 with the 7.3 power stroke need" I busted out laughing right in the middle of the store.

    I've seen that but I didn't know it was from the same guy lol. That made me laugh so hard the first time I saw it.

    Edit:
    What got me about the first vid was the "3000 horsepower to the FRONT wheels, the only place the power should EVER be." and "It can do it all sir. Except coconuts, too hard."

    I'm running a cast Log Style (Don't like log style) mani. But I've already cracked 2... so I'm going SC. On my car you can pretty reliably make 310~ with the CT-E SC. Besides BOVs sound sick and all but I am over turbo lag for AutoX.

    Dayumm. How about rear end gear?

    Oh, just watched an episode of Xtreme 4x4 where they built a diesel for one of their buggys. It was a Duramax that they swapped the rods, pistons, and a bunch of other stuff, added a compound turbo setup that made 85lbs of boost. Overall put out 950hp and almost 1700 foot pounds. Talk about holy... shit...

    I was talking to a customer at work today about his truck and he goes:

    "The rear end gears are really low, I had 88s put in it."

    Huh? What the hell kind of a gear ratio is "88"? Not 2.88? Not 3.88, or god forbid 4.88? Just..."88s".

    Do I know you, by any chance? Or do you just simply know that I dislike muscle cars and decide that means I know nothing about cars, even though it's just a personal opinion, a matter of tastes? Or maybe I said something else that I honestly can't remember?
    Or do you just like talking about people behind their back?

    Edited:

    Anyway, some of my classmates think that "turbo = nitrous" and if I try to teach them what a supercharger does, they don't understand.
    They are the same people who think a stupid riced old Citroen Saxo is the best thing in the world. And when I talk about things like weight transfer or downforce, or even trying to explain something as simple as how TCS works, these people just call me a nerd and think that their new body kit in their Fiesta does magic.

    Wait maybe it's because you know fuck all about good car design. Weren't you the one who got into an argument in the "Car design and how much it sucks nowadays blah blah blah" thread?

    Eh, maybe it was a different thread. But I seem to recall you thinking some fugly cars looked amazing, and everyone disagreeing with you. Someone find me a source on that. I'm too lazy.

    Getting about tired of my friend wanting me to do a B swap in his car and manual tranny swap at the same time.

    How hard is it to understand a motor AND tranny swap isn't just bolting a motor and tranny in? There's a bunch of shit you have to chop out because the car didn't come with holes in those places, and the the pedal setup, clutch cylinders, mounts, wiring tidbits for the M/T since the A/T worked differently, manual ECU, different axles...
