    :D well last night coming home from the cookout we went by the dairy queen right by my house and i glanced up and saw 2 mustangs there with a couple guys standing by them...i have never seen these cars before so i went home grabbed the vert and went around the corner to see these cars but i missed them i was pissed....so i cruised by my friends house around the corner and it looked dark so i headed home....then about 5 mins later he called and said i know i just heard your car go by where are you at?.....he then convinced me to get the car back out and to head to the ave with him and his wife...so i agreed... he has a fox almost like mine except his is a darker red... no hood or bumper....but its a vert like mine and he has 17" 4 lug cobras so they look pretty simular.... anyways as soon as we met at the meijer on the ave we were talking and what not ..and then this caviler with flames and this huge ass wing comes rolling by revving his bumble bee exhaust and its cracking and poping and i was laughing (now if you have ever seen the video on mytube of the mustang thats circling the vettes and what not and they start talking to him about his car....totally this guy)...so we leave the lot and ride up to dominos to get a pizza and as soon as we pull out this guy finds us and is ridding along side us revving his car and i laughed and revved back and he was like ohh does that have a 5.0 in it...and i was like ummm yeah he was like thats cool i want one of them....so i took off because this guy was weird ...then we both turned into the pizza place and he followed both our cars lol i was like nice... he gets there and hes like you guys got some nice cars... and i said thanks..he asked what it ran and i said i have no idea...hes like i just took my car and it ran a 11.5 i was like what?? are you serious he was like yeah and my friends like bullshit show me the engine then so he went over to his car and we followed...... this car had some queer wheels bald tires and the nastiest paint and bodykit i have ever seen...it was being held toghter with duct tape if thats any clue haha...
    so he shows us the engine and all i see is a spray painted intake and we were like how does it run 11's and he says ...oh well i got fuel rails...and cams...and a short throw shifter and a throttlebody spacer and a 200 shot of nitrous...i was like ummm theres no way your pulling 11's man and hes like i got paperwork to prove it...and i was like well then my car must run 10's or faster because i made you look goofy at that last light and he was like its running kinda funny right now and i was like yeah...so we left and he went to rev and take off and snap crackle pop he was making all sorts of noise it sounded nasty i just wish i could have showed you guys this pos and what he was claiming it was

    Funny story man.
    those tools are all over!

    I was in Checker with my buddy Spyder when we were doing his motor, the kid behind the counter starts BSing about his Vtec beating his Cobra. so we says "bullshit!" Then he starts backtalking about some custom motor from Corry somebody, runs 11's - all motor.
    WHATEVER!!! at this elevation, that's 10's...

    I swear, it's 50% bullshit with the high concentration of Ricers and Posers here.

    Oh, then later that nighte, we're over to another Checker to get a Puller, and the kid there tells me his Camero has Forged pistons only, pushes a 300 shot of NOS and runs 10's. "Dalamar shakes his head and laughs"
    Anyway, it was smelling funny. :lol:

    Just remember, everything in the movies is real, and the Fast and Furious is the icon of the young american dream. :rollinglaugh:





    Ok OK, I got one more for ya.
    Dyno Day last weekend at my Tuners shop.
    Cobras, SN's Foxes, (about 20) and a few L's hit the dyno. all ran good, no problems.
    my damn camera had a dead battery. grrrrr.
    then a camero comes in.... OK, I have on issues with Camero's but man, just look at it.
    it sounded like shit, and sounded like it took 30 seconds to gain 1000 rpm's. and when he let off, flames are poping out of his tails.
    His exhaust melted one of the tie down's and melted a hole in his back bumper cover! like a 4" melted hole. put down 205....

    then an Eclipse.... OMH, I hate eclipses!! ONLY because they are the car's that harrass me the most on the road - like annoying flys.
    anyway, FWD, he has all kinds stuff done to the motor (so he says), put down 230, then on the decel it starts swaying back and fourth, and he tries to correct it.
    car shoots sideways, leaves the drums, then pulls back to the other side, leaves the drums and POP, SCREACHHHHHHHH. stop.
    blew out his tires, and mashed the front....

    Did I mention that all 20 Mustangs had no issues.... So that ended that.
    Here again, I'm not anti against imports or slowmaro's, but just look at what happened. :lame:
