    well i dont know too much about APS, but looking at his mods, he moded his "car" all wrong too. you start slow and build up the engine, then add small amounts of boost and work your way up. he went for the biggest (according the APS website) friggen turbo there is, and has no fuel system mods. what a *****ing moron! does anyone here know this punks name????????

    No one knows anything about him he just showed up yesterday. His mod list was worse, as we commented he added mods apparently he didnt check to see if all the mods actually existed or not. He also has a ecu reflash that I have never heard of, there are only 2 ecu reflashing programs out there that i know of (cobb, prodrive software, oh yeah and yoshio) but his wasnt one of those, he also said he would make due with the reflash even though its not the best for em when it is actually the best. Pretty much each post dug him deeper and deeper into a hole.

    I throw up the BS flag on this guy too! The obvious use of the person's handle followed by a semi-colon.. Who uses a semi-colon anymore, anyway?

    Here, let me quote a sample for all u kiddies:

    btw.. (724) 834-2779 - listed under:

    Kim Huey
    94 Main
    Crabtree, PA 15624

    But this address is invalid, since there is no 'Main' Street, Ave, etc in Crabtree or nearby Jeannette or Latrobe..

    Both numbers are from Greensburg or surrounding area, with the 516 number being a PCS phone..

    I wish we could get an admin to check the IP info, just let us know whether they overlap or not.. :P

    It has to be...there are so many loopholes in his story. I used to own a '00 ITR and I know quite a bit about Honda tuning (still a newbie at Subarus though).

    1) There wasn't a '99 USDM ITR
    2) There wasn't a 6 spd that would bolt up to a B series Honda/Acura engine (unless custom)
    3) The ITR engine code isn't B18A...it's B18C5

    I could go on and on, but it's pointless.

    Thanks. I didn't feel like reading 4 pages, so I just replied with why I thought the story was BS.

    Man, I think we could all see this coming a mile away. I frequent a lot of message boards (mostly lurk, never posting) and they're all the same.

    The best part of the kid's original post was..
