If I design a 6 foot wide x 4 foot tall air funnel for the front of your car, will you drive it to see if it gets >1psi N/A?

Ya never heard of a gravity hill? No joke. Look it up online. It's kind of cool, but just an optical illusion that makes you think you car is rolling uphill.

"anyone ever got boost on a n/a BP?
just wondering if anyone has ever hit boost on an N/A BP?.....just like 1 or 2PSI?"


:gay:

Anybody ever have a threesome standing in a hammock? Even a MMF?

Jeez Brain, even talking to these guys will lower your IQ.
