    "Hey dad where's the woooooooooo pssshhhhh." Funniest thing I've ever heard. Are you going to be able to use those wheels at all or are those scrapped from the plans now?
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    I cant afford the tires. Not sure what ill do with them. :/ may have to sell em. I now have to come up with more money than ive ever made doing side work in a year to pay my credit card off before the no interest runs out.

    Id way rather powder coat them and put them on though. Priorities... bleh. lol

    But yeah Noah loves the BOV sound. Hes a goof. His narration is pretty funny.

    lol. Thanks?

    SOOOO

    Car started to misfire on the Dyno on the third pull. I was stupid and didnt put in new plugs. I will be putting in new plugs and going back. Im lucky Im somewhat friends with the tuner. Ill deff owe him though. lol

    Pre issues it was making 260 AWHP and making it easily. Tuner said 300 shouldnt be a problem. He knows I want a somewhat conservative tune though so he wont be squeezing every once of power out at my request.

    Finished up today.

    Tuner thinks AVCS may not be working. I dont know... we didnt really investigate it further. We were wondering about the lower torque numbers and he was looking more at the logs and stuff tonight. We will get it figured out though. overall still nice to have my car back with some power.
