Well, I do know that Daniel, I do, but I had no dyno around to compare my real HP to his Civic's real HP :P

If I would tel him 150hp the conversation wouldn't change a bit :P

I'm assuming you have the a/c on in this vid right? Sounds almost like a bad belt tensioner. Can you get a vid of it with the hood open so we can pin point where the noise is coming from besides from under the hood

Just went to get hot wings for the wife. Low and behold I see a focus with rims. My light turns green and I quickly catch up only to find a focaljet sticker on the window, and my car has no markings (was driving the SVT) to represent FF. That and it's not loud to grab attention. Then when I get to the Wings Stop I find another focus with rims. Son of a... So after that I decide to sticker bomb the SVT with FF stickers since I have a few laying around. Kinda wish I had the bigger ones now but all well, work with what you got right?

Anyone play Forza Motorsports 4 on xbox 360? My team Texas Outlaw Motorsports [TXOM] is now recruiting. We race almost every night in the Le Mans classes. We only require texas residency (preferably central texas) and run the team name on your cars. I provide custom number cards with the team name.

Paul when do you plan to do some more work on your car? I want to come over and steal some knowledge from you :D
..and no don;t worry, we don;t need to touch timing belt on my one :P it's not a trap :D
my SVT needs work but I think I can handle it, until transmission change that is, then will start molesting you again, but it will be no sooner than 3 months :P

Same for you Daniel, i don't think you;re done with Kraken :D

ya, I want to watch people struggling on their cars so I feel better about my one :D
