Glad to hear you got it up and running Travis. So it's just more fun? Hows the throttle response any different?

It happens sometimes. Like this morning having to degrease my motor again due to the smoke starting to come out from under the hood. Lets not mention the smell now ether.


Anyone interested in buying a Sub box from a SVT? I needs money and like i needed it yesterday.

Yea right now i hate my car and i hate ITT Tech. SInce i went back to school for my bachelors, the school told us we have 3 months after we graduate to start repaying some loans back and then 6 months to start paying the others back. Ok so thats cool, well Sallie mae has been calling for a week and i finally answered and apearantly im late 47 days on payments. I talked to the later and my federal loans are being held back til june of next year cuz i cant pay them back. my private loans are late too and i have to pay those now. The lady told me that when i went to school the first time, we had 6 months to start paying them back but what i didnt know was thats the only grace period we have even if we went back to school, we dont get another grace period so once i graduate i start paying them back. Thats bull. Now i have to call back and talk to someone about deferring my private loans til i can get another job that makes me more money. And also my car is making noises while driving, sounds like somethings broke and i cannot find out what it is. Basically im mad and wanna run my car off a bridge. Rant done.

Bummer sorry to hear that. I also owe someone money, not like you but I'm feeling the pressure too, just not as bad. So I can kinda relate, not to mention the enormous electric bill we got this month along with the phone bill, I went over my text's. Lots of stress

Driving slow lol. sometimes it happens when i hit a bump sometimes it just happens when its a smooth road. i hear it in the front and it sounds like a broken spring then i hear it in the back or underneath me. then i have the problem of when i brake going slow, i hear a grinding noise like my caliper is hitting the rim.
