Default FM/FFS cockfight at M.net.

I know nobody likes FM here, and I'm indifferent either way, but is Tom at FFS 12 years old? Throwing out personal insults and pot-shots like they were going out of style, and then trying to pass off his e-cool 5th injector bullshit as an intercooler? Christ, not even magna is that delusional.

Oh yea, I love your title. I was logging on here and was thinking about opening a thread about this and then saw "FM/FSS Cockfight" and just started laughing... I figured it was Richard that started it.

Off topic- is there a area on here to discuss supercharger stuff? I'm putting a millenia supercharger on my 99

Pat--General Miata will work. Been watching your build thread. Awesome stuff; I applaud your conviction and inginuity, doubly so as you did it in the face of adversity.

why buy an intercooler when you can run more fuel than air?

Jesus Tom is a little baby isn't he. Its like he keeps taunting a guy that is right and doesn't want to fight but he just can't let it go.

What a douchebag

I really want to call Tom and personally tell him what a douchebag he is.

The dingleberry is an air splitter to stuff some air into the top portion of the radiator. Part of a few things I did to try and remedy on-track overheating with my too-big-but-looks-really-badass intercooler.

27x8, I think. I know it's 27" wide, but I don't remember if it's 8 or 6.5" tall. No cutting required. Mounted with 3 custom brackets at the top.

I don't know guys. I just went back and revisited that thread. Tom's initial post was pretty jovial. Keith then responds with a pretty blatant accusation that the FFSC kit caused a high incident of engine replacement. That's pretty ballsy of a sponsor. I'd be ready for a fight at that point as well. The whole semantic issue of IC vs Injection did cloud up the issue though. Keith did finally say he appologized, but by then the accusation he made about the FFS kit was already out there and couldn't really be taken back. All in all the argument was valid, but the form it took on got a bit out of hand.

Those ------s fight constantly. They should meet up at Hallett next week and either fight or blow each other. The funny part is regardless of how much I don't like superchargers, neither one of them will have the fastest blown car out there. I think the fastest offering at that track last year was 5 seconds ahead of everyone.

I wouldn't expect anything else from the majority of the supercharger croud. But I can't talk; my car is stock and I'm a bitch.
