Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Fixed it for you...

 

Haha

 

I admit that I buy more Snap-On stuff than I should, but whenever I'm looking for a bit of an oddball thing, they always have it. In fact, I just ordered a Snap-On marine plug screwdriver, and a pair of flush cutters this morning. One screwdriver and one pair of pliers, $106.

They make nice stuff, no doubt, that's why I find myself giving them money more often than I should.

I picked up my wheels yesterday with fresh new tiers, mounted them and washed the A8. Fresh tiers feels so amazing to drive on, compared to those that was on it's like day and night.

Ah, good old Ford. The MK1 Mondeo with the turbo diesel engine has a top mount intercooler. But no cutouts either. xD

 

(I also relate to that image)
