Having held the Fab9 in person, I can say it is a very nice core. I couldn't notice any defects at all. Wish I had it on my Jetta as well!

Plus the convenience of not having to mess with mounting brackets is incredibly nice. Literally takes a couple minutes to pop on.

Fab9 uses Vibrant cores which should be nicer as can be seen in their pic. While I haven't held a vibrant core in person, I generally trust Vibrant parts. I even wear their Tshirt to work from time to time.
I know this. I kind of added that in an edit because the original post looked more like, I was showing how the $120 intercooler was, for all intents (intensive ) and purposes, basically as good core wise as the vibrant. Now of course the china IC is probably twice as heavy, look how thick those end tanks are.

no.

It was text written by Cicero, who was GREEK.

You suggested it was Puerto Rican, which is not a language.

So I corrected you saying it was Greek.

If you had said something like, "I thought it was sanskrit," I would have said, "nope it's latin."

Using Lorem ipsum, which I learned you about, is referred to as Greek[ing]. FWIW, I am the GD/UI SME you requested, by trade.

You did not win this round. You sound like Hyper taking credit for the coolant reroute after we all schooled him on it.

I did never suggest anything than my last reply that it is not greek - which it isn't

Cicero though he was Greek was a Roman philosopher.
To my humble knowlegde that is what Greek writing looks like


So the Lorem ipsum is written in Latin types and has some words that resemble a text in Latin by Cicero, but only some of the words, not the whole text. So for instance the word Lorem does not exist in Latin.

Apart from that - I couldn't care less if I am wrong or right, I just wanted to make a funny reply with my last answer...

Don't leave you crazy german! Or at least kill yourself in a better way than that! Go out with a bang! Maybe fill your miata with glitter and crash it using allofit.

Thanks for the tip on the rad.

I am going to get the KOYO 53mm as extra protection for a coolant reroute. I was able to get it significantly below retail.
