And your gloryhole is rated for a 12" shlong, but we both know neither can live up to their ratings.

Super. That might hold 180hp for a launch or two before exploding.

I hate to say it, and it's your car you can do with it what you want, but you have made a lot of poor decisions. I see you don't care much about performance so that's cool. To you it's more about talk.

I bought a Spec "stage 2".

Lasted for (and i **** you not) ZERO seconds into boost.

Pulled the car out of the garage and the clutch was slipping under anything positive pressure.

I feel like a noob and an idiot because of it, but all is well because i then joined this site and did some reading. Now i'm not having a bad time.

The solution is to have less mechanical grip than your clutch can provide.

Run on spare donut tires and you'll be fine.

Your wide stance reminds me of Larry Craig.

LoL at the stages... Last week i heard some dude talking about his grand Pri...

"Oh yeah i'm at stage 2 right now... "

"Umm what is stage 2?" I'm thinking to my self maybe hes got a supercharger or something.

"Its a high flow intake and an exhaust."

Made me laugh quite a bit... its a ******* aluminum pipe with a filter on it and hes talking like a big shot because """"zomaygawd stage 2""""
