    Hey guys,

    There's this kid I'm friends with on Facebook that's always talking out of his @$$, usually something along the lines of his riced out Saturn Ion beating GTs, but yadda yadda.

    Anywho, he recently IMed me about a friend's S197 GT, and this conversation got some absurdly silly, that I just had to share it with everyone. ENJOY! :D

    Sit back and enjoy the stupidity. It's like the one guy I work with.... He restored a 63 Chevelle with a 396 and a 8 speed trans...I won't go into the rest of the details. I just nod my head and say cool. You can't fix stupid.

    Its pretty funny, but don't let it get to you. Ignorance like that cant be fixed easily.

    I once had a coworker tell me his dodge ram had a mopar supercharger from the factory. I researched it and knew he must be lying since it wasn't offered with his truck from mopar, so I asked him to pop the hood so I could check it out one day. Sure enough it had no blower and when I politely told him that he was missing a blower, he tried to correct me and pointed at his alternator and said there's the supercharger... Claimed it took special oil and the dealer charged him extra for it, guess he was paying the stupid tax.

    People try too hard sometimes. Not sure what it accomplishes, other than them looking stupid.

    Maybe he is talking about followers..... as opposed to rockers.... its clear he didn't know what he was talking about ..... the 3v had vct but because it was a DOHC it obviously can't have tivct (twin independent variable cam timing). Guy is a tard.......

    Is it ion at least the redline with a supercharger.....

    Pulling the tires at 80 with 20lb injectors..... lol

    guy i work with told me once he had a foxbody with a special edition "maple grove raceway" package right from ford that had over 300hp from the factory. not even worth arguing with these people as they don't want to listen anyway.

    The responses here have made my day haha.

    Just a few quick replies:

    No, I don't anger easily, just a real short tolerance for stupid. :grin:

    D3VST8R96GT, no, it's not the s/c Redline Edition. Just a plain ol' Ion, with tons of ricey mods he's bragged about....

    1) MAF has been completely deleted. Yup. Removed the intake tract and mounted a filter on the throttlebody for a "short ram" intake. :laughing5:

    2) Cut the coil springs (twice) to lower it. Going for the "stanced" & "negative camber" look...

    3) F*** it, not enough negative camber in the rear. He then swapped stock bushings for......wait for it......SKATEBOARD BUSHINGS.

    I think we all have a friend or two like that. Its always fun just to sit back and let them do their thing, better then cable most of the time. I had a buddy in high school one day start one of these stories about how he got jumped by some gang members that he and his brother fought off, he had a black eye from it. 2 weeks later we found out it was his brother that gave it to him.
