    Wait, I shouldn't be laughing, my buddy just found somebody on there to buy my ka24de motor (SR20DET coming soon) out of the 240.

    We should definitely have a meet soon. If anybody wants a CEL fix like the one here CEL after installing catback I'll do it for free as I now have a few extra resistors. I've also got the cheap homemade mechanical rear o2 fix.

    I am going up/down/tbe in the next month or two. I will most likely need the cel fix.

    A meet sounds good, when I get all the parts in I am most likely going to need some assistance.

    I am thinking ERZ up/down, Not sure on the cat back yet at this time.

    Anybody know what catback mates good with the erz down?

    Ahhh, its supposed to rain the next few days. The good news is, I am not going to the coast now, Hurahh!

    What exhaust did you put on there 240?

    Good luck in selling that engine.

    I laughed my ass off on medfordtuners. I don't think I have laughed that hard in ages.

    I've got the Espelir JGT500. I bought it used from Oh For Rex on this board. It sounds, for lack of a better term, wicked awesome. Now total I've got a Visnu uppipe (used $100), Helix downpipe (bought new but from somebody on this board $230), and the catback (used $320).

    When you buy your exhaust parts shoot me a PM and I'll drive the two blocks and help with the install. It's pretty simple once you've done it once or twice.

    I got banned from that websites messageboards because I made fun of their women and their cars. I asked why the hell are there people at medfordtuners that drive Lincoln Town Cars and Toyota pickup trucks. I also made a mention that one of the girls that showed her pics was surprisingly not hideous. We should crash one of their meets at the Dawg Stop

    I was in medford today and a dude in his blue eclipse (N/A) revved his motor. I looked over and he shook his head and gave me the "my car is faster/I'm an icey hot stunta" look. We started pointing and laughing. He was rolling pretty hard, mean muggin it, until his girlfriend in the passenger seat started laughing too.

    My car looks stock, which it is, so nobody ever tries racing me and if they do, they would probably kick my ass because I'm afraid to do any kind of a launch in the car. I drive like an old woman off the line.

    My car looks stock but doesn't sound stock anymore. In fact, I think most people are kind of confused when they see it. Well, that and the way I drive. I went and ate some pizza with a few of the Performance Under Pressure guys and a couple of other people tonight. We all decided to caravan out to Rogue River Highway to look at a turbo Trans Am (rare). So basically the line up consisted of my WRX wagon, two turbo Legacys, a Buick Regal T-Type, a Civic, and a Datsun 510 tearing it up and sliding corners through town. It was fun. Then we went back and a crazy guy told me all about how he's a cryptologist with spinal cancer that used to work for the ISBN and proceeded to tie numbers together to explain everything from that tsunami to 911 to George W. Bush to social security to the bible to Kennedy. The guy was really intelligent and his whole speal was really trippy. Then again I like listening to that kind of stuff.

    so I see 5 meet ideas for the future.

    One, Crash the medford ricer...err..tuners meet up.

    two, big install when I get my parts ordered (waiting on tax return money)

    three, track down the poor poor kid in the blue n/a eclipse, and scare him.

    four, watch Rich..(myself), race Biggs, because we both drive like grandmas.

    five, Drink...and drink heavily.

    yeah somebody should keep an eye out for those medford meets. i do know from my ricer buddies that every friday and maybe saturday they meet down by RCC and like we all know, drive a 5 block radius until the engines combust or they get pulled over. i went one time while it was raining and this chick kept telling me to use the e-brake to slide around and that it was fun, and when i told her i wasnt FF and i could just gas it to get it to step out she had no idea what iwas talking about..

Im with you guys, I used to be a honda guy and still am at heart but when that whole website was brought up to make fun of me and my car.....I got a little pissed. (I had the white 02 si with a carbon hood and MUGEN Flag down the side)

    well from what i saw your hondas arent rice like the other guys in medford...im talking neons with major hood scoops and l.e.d. windshield wipers, and cavaliers with chopped springs and underglow in its 3 hoods scoops...
    i think it would be funny to have a bunch of wrxs tear it up over there, and see what happens....street racing however is retarded in medford, (well in general i guess, but..) there the cops know whats up and its easy to get pulled in such a public place; but they dont really race i guess they just look at their sick paint and mad body kits so its not a big problem...

    We will have to crash one of their little meet ups. It would be entertaining to say the least. When and where do they usually meet up? I am not sure where RCC is. Im guessing its the community college of redwood highway? Or is it some place in Medford? Eh...

    Anybody's place of business hiring?

    They mean RCC Medford campus. If you guys really want to go I could find out when they meet up and everything.

    Oh by the way, I just test drove an STI again about half an hour ago. What a great way to make your car feel slow. The temptation is strong to trade my car in. I've got an appointment on Friday to see how much my car is worth to them.

    yeah i bet its tempting...did you get anythign in the mail from subaru last month? they sent somehting about a guaranteed trade-in value or something, i bought mine in 2002 though...when i drove my buddy's STi i was amazed at the torque down low- that would be tempting but depending on your situation it could be cheaper to do something like a turbo-back, a simple Vf-34or 22 with injectors and fuel pump..yadda yadda yadda...
    but if its not too much money go for the STi you'll have a beefy gearbox and ubertorque...
    the RCC i meant was by a blue RCC sign off jackson i think...before the nissan/bmw dealer, and they always drive aorund liek a 4-block radius allllllll night but most end up in that one little alley...
