I used to really be into muscle cars, and road and track used to do there comparison tests they would do a bone stock test, and then they would throw on a supercharger ,and run them. video tape it, and it pulled the covers on a lot of aftermarket part makers. their should be a magazine dedicated exactly to this pulling the covers on part makers to let the people know whats really going on. especially those guys selling those turbonators.
Yes there is a lot of name whoring going on down to the simplest components that don,t make a difference of manufacturing, but the price diff is phenominal. This type of consumer abuse needs to stop. we control the dollar, but no hard facts or gaurantees as to what their applications bring to the table.WE ARE BEING TREATED LIKE jACK ,AND the beanstalk. fuck that i want to try out them beans first then ill pay.
you should start making a posi-displacement blowers. hehe
mustangs have the kenny belles, we should have the rage. the only problem with that is they would have to be fairly inexpensive to compete with turbo kits.
I think consumers should be able to see manufacturers products backed up by solid proof, help us take the guess work out, I'm not sure how many more of you guys don't like making decisions...but if I'm goin to spend 2 grand on something, it damn well better work...and some form of "we'll refund you, and you can keep the product if you don't tell ur friends" system would be nice too!!
Something what benefits us all would be a upgraded parts for cooling and lubrication.A upgraded oil pump for the D's,maybe even some Oil Jet's to put in the bottem end ,something that has been tested over and over and what is reliable.The better the lubrication and cooling the longer the D's will survive
I think some plastic vacuum formed center/stereo consoles that would accept the large double-din sized stereo's and have areas that could be knocked out that would fit a VAFC and/or turbo timer. Kinda the same thing as the OBX guage bezel that takes 2 guages for the EK's, just taken a step further.

well seeing as i can do what i want, i figured i would let you guys chat it up in here. might as well let everyone have a chat thread, since its the only thing i can think of that is kind of silly to stop. then again, i do know it slowed the site down. maybe a few more "larger" donations from a...
