I think it is fair to clearly state that my efforts to configure the Alpha stuff came in large part from this forum. Many expressed a wish for a cast iron 4 into 1 manifold with remote gate and (optional) V-band turbo clamp. So I built it. Patterns are done and at the foundry.

Several items have been deleted at the suggestion of this forum. S4......

I do find it somewhat curious that this forum doesn't push tech stuff with great effort. Rather than the ongoing oneupmanship of snide stuff by 50% of you, why not try the details of, say, configuring a good intercooler inlet cap. If half of you that could easily do that proceeded to do so the snide half would both benefit and eventually decide to contribute rather than remain butt heads.

This group has the savvy to push new stuff, create some interesting concepts, and push the technology of making more power on less boost, better driveability, more mpgs and have great fun doing it all. Why not?

Some bh disses my "tiny facility.' Is 6,000 square feet tiny, and what difference does it make? As a group, we made some real progress there......

I give it my best shot to not respond to stupid comments, save the above. Will the response be in kind to my own stupid comments? Or does the bh half need more raw meat?

Regardless, its all still fun,

I sincerely have great difficulty following exactly who and what you are referring to at times or else I would be better able to participate in this discussion. The non-sequitur about the intercooler inlet caps, for instance, has me baffled.

I've not ever heard anyone say that Corky Bell wasn't a nice guy with wonderful intentions. The only criticisms I have ever heard (and I have none myself) have been regarding the operation and management of the day to day operations.

I think he just randomly drunk-posts in various threads every couple months, in response to a conversation in his head, cause I went back like a whole page and still can't comprehend who he's even talking to, or responding to, or......

Corky sometimes reminds me of Ron Paul, yea he's got some wise things to say, but who's really listening anymore?

Fellow bh's,

Pages 1, 2, & 3.

I admit to being a bit slow on timing. Probably a few other areas as well.

So, the answer I get about why this group doesn't do something more useful than pissing on my leg and many others too ( and I gave an example) is that I have too much Tequila for breakfast.

Gotta tell you, Quaker Oats with Jose is a real treat. Get real.

It was while doing shots of Patron that I hit a 5 wood from the fairway to within 4 feet of the hole at Pumpkin Ridge.

And its a pretty cheap time machine once you hit a certain point you wake up 2 days later in a dumpster behind a pool hall with a sore bum, but hey, you time traveled to the future.

At the last Miata Challenge / SuperMiata BBQ at Buttonwillow, I was making margaritas with Patron silver, fresh limes, Grand Marnier and agave nectar for everyone. My those were good. Worth the hangover most of us had after draining a few beers in between margaritas.

You got to have those beers. For balance. Without them the hangover is much worse.

Drink the good stuff first, and after you have a good buzz going switch to the cheap **** since your taste buds are numb by now anyway...

Quite an impressive shot. Which club did you use to hit the 5-wood?
