Default wow

If only there were a FAQ somewhere on this board, in a post entitled "DIY FAQ - all your answers in one big post." If only. And imagine if there were a search function that could find it for you. Imagine !!!!!

I recommend you run your ratio at 22.4 to 1. This will give you outstanding fuel economy!

But I'm just some random guy on the internetz. Maybe I'm screwing with you. Maybe your motor will explode into neato lego-sized pieces if you do that. Maybe you'd better do some research of your own, and become a man, instead of a thong-wearing pool boy.

Whups, starting to sound a bit like Hustler and I don't really have his talent for such things.

WOW this site is full of great people!!! LOL, so I do, do my research, though I do like to get personnal opions from people who have been here already!!! My bad for not wanting to buy things from website when every site wants your to buy, but none want to review and have customers talk about the product, thus the reason why I ask questions, huh ask people who have tried things. WHAT A THOUGHT!!! Because if you ask me, FMUs from ebay that are optigon shaped crush their aluminum disc's within 7 PSI. But info like that shouldn't be shared because I'm a mean guy that wants everyone to go through that and waste their $119. And many other things.

In a nut shell, try to be a little nicer, and maybe just help people, because you don't know where they are coming from, or what they are doing. And yes they could be dumb, but its not your place to judge!!!

This is an advanced board. There are some serious discussion here by people who know a lot. I've been here almost 2 years and I am up to a whopping 107 posts. This is because I learn from reading. Partly because my ETA for boost wasn't until this past christmas, but mostly because I didn't post a question unless I knew it was legitimate. How did I know it was legitimate? Research.

Dude you asked if your A/F ratio should be 1/1. ONE TO ONE. This indicates you are completely unqualified to turbocharge your car.

Starting a thread asking which FMU people would recommend, this one or that one, is one thing. Crashing random threads with the question is another thing entirely and will not be tolerated.

Just think, if you would have just saved a little more instead of trying to cheap out and get crap off ebay, you'd have half the funds to buy the quality piece from a reputable vendor....

Lesson for the day - EBAY is great for some things and not for others, use your best judgement
