But when scaled down so it's sitting on the spoon you can't tell what it is.
Awesome +1. But you couldn't fit all the answers OP is looking for on one spoon.

I know your going to hate me for asking and I swear this is the last but what about the garret gtp38r? It's my last turbo. I tried looking at the compressor map but I'm not sure how to read it. Sounded like its big for fords so maybe I can sell it and get money for a better turbo for my car

I'd just like to say that i'm proud of you all for taking eggplant to new levels. If i never contribute anything else to this site, i'm proud to have given at least this much enjoyment to everyone. It's grown far beyond what i could have ever hoped for, i've been brought to tears.

Thank you all.

I'm curious how many people actually know where the eggplant reference is from. Not everyone watches Netflix original series lol. The context should be obvious that it's a synonym for MT.net intro thread OPs.

I think it had to do with overfilling cylinders. Just a hunch. I totally wasn't there, though.

There's another story behind it? I though it was from when Concealer decided that OP of another thread had the intelligence of an eggplant and started posting eggplant pics.

I wasn't aware of another story behind it, myself, but i'm fairly certain that i wasn't the first person ever to say that someone was as dumb as a vegetable.

Right, but you were the first to declare POST PICS OF EGGPLANT! on this forum.

There's a TV show on netflix called Orange is the New Black, basically about inmates, awesome lesbian sex in the first episode. Anyway... if you're still reading after that last sentence before fapping to netflix, there's a running joke that never quite gets finished about an eggplant being another name for a retard.

It's starts with "So a penguin and a farmer walk into a bar..." and ends with "And so the penguin says, "Dude, he's not an eggplant, he's retarded".

See this is what happens when you sleep in...

18, to answer your question, you can stop licking his *** hole when he stops asking for reasonable advice? Just because something's been answered a few times, doesn't mean we can just say "search newb". I'd love to see a page of useful advice before any bashing, which this thread delivered.

At this point, we've given him so much advice between turbo sizes, manifold choices, and ECU options, I don't see why we can't turn it into the official MT eggplant thread.

Oh....

Yeah... this pre-dates that by a decent margin.

So that means someone who writes for Orange is the New Black must be an MT.netter. That's 3 months before the episode was aired.
