Jason. I see the Dart is back. RT looks like weak sauce with 184 chp. Maybe they will do a GTS and put the turbo 2.4 in it.

Maybe it's because I live on the Greene county/Fayette county border . I knew what fian was right off the rip. I would spelled it fee-an. Too bad he just didn't say wang. Would have been a lot simpler for you city folk to decipher.

That blue bugeye has me itching to find a car. Got to fight the urge. I can swing a bugeye now. But that means trans swap later. Must resist.....or...get bugeye...make it nice..sell when ready for sti........

Any idea of what kind of power that little BRZ 2.0 might put out with a hi-flow cat, intake, and tuning? I know an intake helps an NA motor alot more than a turbo engine, and also that due to EPA/wtfever the exhaust is probably quite restrictive. The question is, how tapped out is the 2.0 - meaning how much could be gained also via tuning? probably wouldnt gain much more than 10-15, huh.

Yeah, their sorta functional. Not going to lie that's not my first choice of grille. But it's grown on me since I first got it. I just honestly needed something cheap to replace the broken oem one.

Do not take the bait. He is the resident new guy hazing specialist. Your car is very nice. His has been two toned with rhino liner . Pretty damned fast though.

**** owning a home.

"Equitable" gas just called to say during a routine inspection they discovered the underground line going from my meter to curb box had a leak and they shut off my gas. They said I have to either pay $200 for a 72-hour temporary fix via above ground rubber hose, within which time I can contact a plumber to have a new permanent line installed. $1200 minimum cost, up to $1700 depending on the ground they have to dig up/difficulty etc.

TL;DR: how the hell do I get out of this? Or get it cheaper.

Sucks Bro. Its all a scam. Call a plumber. How far are you to the shutoff in front of the house in the street? I replaced my mothers gas line from the meter to the street shutoff for $800. It was 15 feet or so. Had to dig two holes. Many times the old line can be "sleeved" with a new one without digging up the whole yard.

Yeah, and what about rescaling ? I saw no tuning being done. Meth drops your whp if you don't tune for it. Plus that guy is clearly ripping of Dale's tassel cap genius look.
