Guy ended up being a complete moron. The shit was physically in the car right but I had to retime the car when we got it back. Then there was an issue with the pcv system. I assume the engine was fine, but we came across an offer we couldn't refuse on swapping to the zetec. Anyways, don't let that guy touch your car.

I guess the Z06 (first video) has the ZR1 handling package / programming and the angriest of angry street legal tires you can buy... Still interesting

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.
