If its a metal HG, you probably can.

We reused a B6T metal gasket one time in a pinch and it lasted till the owner boosted 16psi in 5th on a ecu not ment to do more than 12...

yeah mine is the metal one, I just get worried because it seemed to have a some sort of silicone film that peels off onto the head or block.... I am just replacing the head with a valve crack with a good head I have lying around... Thanks, im just going to pop it on there and hope for the best.

For instance, you might label a loaf of bread as being "hexavalent chromium free".

LOL that's a great idea. And a profitable one.

Yes. That.

That movie was awesome, but I guess it depends on what you were expecting when you saw it.

I literally expected a disneyned over story, some cool graphics, daft punk, and a few good inside nerd jokes (your messin with my zen thing man...).

I got all of those from it so I was happy

Dammit! It's spring time, I shouldn't be feeling this ill. Started feeling like *** early Saturday morning and now I feel like I have been clubbed in my sleep with a 2x4. Head is pounding, feel like I have a fever, ache from heat to tow, super weak (couldn't even open my Gatorade) and my throat hurts so bad I hardly want to eat or drink. Not sure if it's something I caught or just late arriving allergies. FTL!!! So much for seeing family today for Easter, I doubt I'll leave my bed/computer.

Integra Type-R plenum can definitely be machined to a 70mm opening, but what about to 74mm?

One wonders.

******* cops! I hate them so much, they are always so useless when you need them, but theyre real quick to write you a ticket the second you step out of line.

Driving home last night, me and my gf were 2.5 hours from home when we entered one of those stupid speedtrap cities. I even knew it was a speedtrap city and made sure to watch my speed. Original speed limit was 55, 100 ft later, 45, 200 ft later was 35, so i slowed down as quickly as possible without waking the gf. Came to a stop sign and turned left. last speed sign i saw was 35, so went to 35. almost immediately saw a 55 mph. The second i started accelerating to 55 i saw blues.


I ******* got trapped 40 in a 25, there was no ******* 25 mph sign!

WTF?

Its too far away to be worth trying to go back and fight. Besides I dont want to ever be in that shithole again.

This stupid cop also noticed that my eyes were glossy... ok, they get glossy when Im the slightest bit tired. We even let him search the car without a warrant in hopes that he would lower the charge. not a single mph was lowered.

Not only that, he was real quick to right a price tag on my mistake, 133.75 dollars.... dammit!
He even passed me in a no passing zone immediately after we started back up....

Any ideas on what to do?
Also, random note, but this wouldn't show up to a current employer unless they ran another background check would it?

Accumulate evidence, go to court, before court ask the prosecutor to plea you down to a lessor offense, maybe even a non moving violation instead of having you go to court. In some places you have to ask the cop. Either way be polite, you wont get any ware with an attitude (not saying you have one, but you don't want to come off as alpha male in this situation)

You deliver pizza? That's what I do and if your in a similar situation, I don't think they'll know until your insurance or drivers license expires and they ask you to show proof of insurance or your new license to work. Otherwise, I don't know how a speeding ticket would effect your job.
