    first big upgrade!

    got a nice bonus today. going to smoke some plastic and get gewd stuff for my wagonX. remember your first big mod? this one is going to look like this.

    grimmspeed up pipe. i fear a crunched turbo.
    turbo inlet and intercooler pipes
    all the parts to intake off repair the fuel line leak for good!
    real 6.5" speaker mounts for the front doors.
    road trip and TUNE!

    oh, a 2.2k ohm resistor. had to order that too. radio shack, really? the kid i talked to had no clue. i guess they don't put them in smart phones.

    I remember when Johnny 5 could be built using one RadioShack brick&mortar store.

    Now it's a pain in the ass just to find the DIY electronics!

    Depending on how competent the employees are, Im in the Philly district and I always take care of my customers. But it wouldnt be the first time where I go to a North Jersey district store and have to teach the employees there what the products are.

    i cant hack him too much, i was part of a ham club and did build a (simple!) radio on one of those little electronic peg board kits. that said, he hacked his own smart phone and trouble shot a satalite tv customer over the phone great all while he was googling 'resistor' thats more like it lol.

    the boss here at our shack is a old radar tech and had one for me in like two seconds. but its a tiny store....i have no idea where he got it from but ive got one now!

    oh gods....short circut. i still have both on tape recorded off HBO somewhere! and thanks for the help guys, without the club i would be just another daily driver paying out for subie service even though i turn wrenches for a living
