My family has been doing it for 40+ years, its hard to understand manufacturing unless you have been around it.
^exactly, we have the same conversations here too about the cost.

It's 'plummeting' as long as you get all your info off social media. Different story when you actually BUY quality aluminum that needs to meet real world specs.

Stop projecting your own insecurities onto me.




That's the one I would buy. Made by an actual motorsport company
You spent $250k on Subarus?
No wonder you can't afford any of KB's products.
You're an even bigger idiot than I thought.

Hell my heavily modded 2000 Ford Focus ZTS had 350whp before i got my STi. And for a 2000 focus to push out 350 whp that was A LOT of money to make happen. Dont ask.
The links are of my old cars that I've moved on from. Foo seems to think that by moving on to bigger and better projects and not spending life changing amounts of money on vehicles then I'm somehow projecting some kind of insecurity out to the world.

Strange way to interpret it but I'm not surprised someone who doesn't know the first thing about manufacturing has no idea how to spend his own money wisely.

I have spent around 15k on my car in the last 5 or so years and I already think thats a bit much.

250k would likely have me jump off a bridge cause thats 4.5 c6 ZR1s and I'd just like 1 ZR1 haha

LOL i sold my 420WHP STI, 2016 Lexus GS350 F-Sport, and bought a house because to maintain the built STi would have required more money and since the new house is in the city, no room for extra parking. Now I drive my wifes freaking Toyota Camry. I cry a little every morning i get in that car. Planning to get back in the subi game as soon as my wife finishes her Doctorate degree.

I also bought a house as well. Adulting is painful but necessary.

oh dude, when my truck is paid off in 3 years. I'm putting the Subaru back to stock and buying a c6 z06.

I sold my first house, made 145k in equity and put it down on a bigger house with a bigger garage. I told the wife I wanted to take 40k to buy a z06 but she said that wasn't a smart decision.

Shes right, but I still want a z06.

Haha awesome. Do it. They're a bargain right now and one of those cars that most people don't drive a lot so low mileage examples are plentiful.
It's definitely been a learning curve for me learning how to drive something with 2x as much power as my STI, but it's a blast.

You're mistaken.

That metal place is over 1/8" thick, it's super stiff, and Tomei actually tests and validates their products/theories before selling to the public (not like some vendors). And their windage tray is light years ahead of yours.

Oh its gonna happen.

I'm gonna stroll up in a Hawaiian t-shirt, white new balance shoes, cargo shorts with my white tube socks up to my knees.

I'm only 32, but I'll be damned if I don't try to look 50 when I buy it

Awesome! Mine is a C6 Jetstream Blue. I've honestly never been a huge fan of corvettes styling wise, always was a Viper guy. But this thing showed up right after I sold the STI and I just had to jump on it.
I need some summer tires badly.

ha, yeah I was actually looking between gen 5 vipers and the C7 Z06. I loved the gen 5 viper, and some of the older ones too.
The removeable top on the C7 and the variable exhaust sold me on it. Plus the gen 5 vipers were a solid 10-20 grand more expensive.

The C6's are sweet too, I love the NA 7 liter, sounds cooler for sure.

Wow, another thread someone is attempting to completely derail. What an insecure, selfish and jealous crybaby. He's obviously incapable of giving a respectful comment on what he prefers, and would rather try and demean someone to elicit responses he never actually considers. The OP wasn't even asking for an opinion on Tomei garbage, he had it narrowed down to two brands. I stay away from Chinese made products, especially when their descriptions don't even match the actual product specs. Not sure it's purposely to mislead people into buying or inadvertently due to translation, but I try and avoid China built engine parts that have questionable quality and zero tech support. I've learned over my short life that China is great at fooling people into believing they make a quality product, when their main objective is to make cheaply built copies at the lowest cost possible.

He's also stating KillerB searches threads they are mentioned in as if it's a problem, when it's actually how they take care of customers. They would rather see if they can help with customer issues, which they always do, than leave customers (and potential customers) on their own. I use several of their products and they are top notch quality, very precise and robust. They also step in if you have an issue and take care of you, unlike some other American companies I've dealt with.

If someone has an issue with a vendor, he needs to start his own pissing and moaning thread or contact the vendor directly. He almost always craps in threads with no regard for other members.

You have serious issues. BTW, Tomei is Japanese, where Subaru's comes from. You got problems.
