let your MAP hose blow out on a pull while tuning your own car two weeks after you had a new short block put in (STi block with less than 1000K on it)

close the gap on your spark plug - it's there for a reason

The good news is that each of the above car owners are now my customers and almost all of them have been repaired. I was able to educate each owner and not a single case has been repeated since. (knock on wood) ;o)

So much Win in this thread, I don't know which one I should do first. Maybe I'll try to do them all at the same time. Would that classify as epic win?

This is awesome. Great thread.

What's the problem? That looks exactly like how the stock downpipe attaches to the turbo on my Daytona Shelby.

What's wrong with the hollow sway bars? I have been tracking my Cobb/Hotchkis hollow bars front and rear for many years and I never seen or hear of any problems.

Maybe that person was abusing the car to the way that the sway bar wasn't design to do??? If they were installed properly and have them maintained, that shouldn't happen at all unless it's a defective one.
