I would rather ride on a train being powered by Galts motor and using Rearden Metal as the tracks.


Myabe I should put your WILG sticker on the train.

I think dental is different, but yes, we do pay a ****-ton of taxes for healthcare. Also, when you DO need healthcare for something, you still have to pay for it. I don't get it? But as far as I'm concerned, we have pretty good teeth, no? My teeth are straight and white. Then again.. I'm not sure about those lumberjack folk...... ha ha ha.

And poutine is ******* awesome. That is probably the ONLY thing I don't mind about the French.

You know what's kinda funny? If you go to any car site and search crash, SRT-4s will take the cake in terms of numbers.

Needs less politics and more ramble.

I make dumb little songs when I'm bored.

Two things tonight:

First, super-fasto turn signal blinkers! What happens on the Wangan at 320 km/h should stay there.

Second, don't tailgate me! I'll brake check you. Put 20 cars on you then brake check you.

That's because all of these 6' flat, 120-pound ******s with white sunglasses and sideways hats with stickers on them who can't drive buy them because they think it's fast (even though it's a Neon) and don't grasp the concept of lateral grip or braking distance. ******* douchebags. I had an old friend that bought one and cut the springs with a hacksaw and threw a massive turbo on it and a shitty tune. He crashed his into a pole on a street that maybe had a 2 turn in it.

I know almost nothing about turbo sizing and compatibility, so pardon the noob question:

Should I be dropping $100 on this T3/T4 for the hell of it, provided it spins freely with little shaft play?

http://jackson.craigslist.org/pts/1903073924.html

Will it ever be useful to me (or could I flip it to one of you suckers for a profit)? Keep in mind, if one of you guys tells me it's crap and then posts up about your new T3/T4 that you stole, I will nerdrage you in an epic fashion.

Well, I shot him an email to ask for more info on it, but like I said I'm fairly clueless when it comes to turbo specs and sizing, so I'm not even sure if I'd know how to interpret what he tells me. I took the BEGi shortcut for my car so I haven't taken the time to learn about turbo sizing/compatibility other than very general stuff.


EDIT: Screw it, Damon set me straight.

Ha ha, something tells me that would have been a downgrade from the S3?

I think a few of us are having problems. I've tried and failed about five times over the last month or two. I do not know why, but it does suck. Nothing changed in my the process, I just get white.
