Both of those are good Aku, haha.

Edit* Found the math fail

From this point on both sides equal zero:

2a - 2b = a + b - 2b

I know that, but most people are dumb and don't get it. I just wanted to see how many people noticed lol

Technically it does say 2(0) = 0 but with the variables instead of actual numbers it throws people haha

Haha, nice.

Also, I threw a thread up in the duratec section, but the motor we are putting in my car came out of a 2004. I know they are rated at slightly less horsepower, (like 140 something?). I was wondering if anyone knew the differences, if its internal, or just in intake/exhaust and tuning.

Hey guys, does anyone know where I can get my car dyno'd for cheap around metro detroit? I don't want to tune, just want to do a few pulls to see where my car is at, before I install my new engine.

Try calling walsh motorsports in wixom. Or look for a dyno day thread on xceedspeed.

so, i was driving yesterday and sometimes when i was in 5th or 6th at around 2k rpms and i would try to accelerate, it just felt really weak. i mean sometimes i literally wouldn't go up in 6th gear. and then this burning smell was coming from the clutch area. it stopped doing it later on, but also in that same time period, my parking brake was like making this terrible creaking noise and the car would roll back maybe half an inch. now neither problem happens but any clue if those could be related?
