My MR2 project....

  1. your sig is too long. delete it all.
     
  2. Oh man! I can't live without my long sig. I'm dying....Arrrggggg, must, hit, button: "Upload Images and Create This Reply"....LOL
     
  3. Stop fingering your ass, your hands will stink!
     
  4. Since when is GM using Toyota engines? Seriously, shut the hell up. The small block Chevy V8 is an awesome engine.
     
  5. Well this is going well.
     
  6. So, this is going well.
     
  7. you'd be surprisd at how much it doens't smell
     
  8. Vibe uses a 1zz-fe engine made by Toyota. Prisms and Novas have also used Toyota engines. They are a dirrect bolt in swap with mine...LOL
     
  9. The Prism and Nova WERE Toyotas. By that reasoning Toyota uses GM engines because the Cavalier was sold as a Toyota in Japan. Either way, you're clearly an idiot regardless of how Toyota and GM share their respective resources.
     
  10. Really? At what point did I make that so clear? Build a naturally aspirated 4A-GE/MR2 that that runs mid 14s if any idiot can do it, there are SC and ITA category owners that aren't this fast. I ate my share of 350s too. My anchor is from a guys Camaro that bet his engine that he could beat me; its pretty mossy looking now but I think I improved it. The F-Body might get 13s in magazines but all the owners around here are mid to high 14 second drivers. Or maybe that engine just doesn't do so well @ 2500 ft ASL. Who knows, who cares, since you like them I'll sell you the next 350 I win. LOL
     
  11. And as far as the ban threats go, I could permenantly ban your computer from even being switched on. But...I'm a nice guy. No really, the long sig was funny though. How DID that ever happen?
     
  12. Cutting a GT40 style hood vent into a beat-up MR2 pretty much sealed my judgement. Given the incredible amount of heat your MR2 ISN't making and the incredibly high speeds it WON'T achieve that was really a pointless move. Your n00bish comments on the LS1 only reinforced the conclusion.
     
  13. God i wish I were a mod right now.
     
  14. "AMGrulz LOL"
     
  15. ZOMG BAN
     
  16. Don't we all. The ducting through the hood is fully functional and you can tell there is a lot of pressure on the front at anything above 100 mph. It really makes me wish I had don some rear down force first. I'm sure you'll want to see some "wind tunnel slips" or some other rediculous demand before you believe that. I'll be sure to rub another time slip that says 13.X in your face after I do my cam swap and custom intake manifold.

  17. You could push this across the finish line, or tow it.
     
  18. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. I'm sure you probably think those Pep Boys rear wings are just as useful as the ones they put on real racecars! At 100mph your hackjob does dick.

    Yeah, you knowing more about my car without having driven it is about as credible as me knowing what I'm talking about in the field of aero mods. As far as the rear wing goes I'll be using this one: http://www.aprperformance.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=40&Itemid=44

    The aluminum GT-II

    Some people race, some people just talk.

    Oh, I'm sure it DOES in fact have front end lift at 100mph. But the fact is, for a car that can barely hit 93mph in the 1/4 mile, it doesn't seem terribly necessary.
     
  22. Hey there couch potato! Where do you get your lines? Do they work to pick up the ladies? LOL
     
  23. You meant front end "down force". Is OK, I forgive you. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Ask your high school counselor if there is an aerodynamics class available, Junior. Pay attention so you can come back and agree with me some more, you could even tell some of these jokers the formulas you used to figure out that I make about 120 lbs of down force @ 100 mph. Peace, again. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  24. Why would creating an area of low pressure on the top of your hood create downforce?
     
  25. No, I meant front end LIFT. As in, the air moving OVER your car has to move faster than the air going UNDER it. This creates an are of low pressure over your car and a region of comparatively high pressure under it. Air flows from area of high pressure to areas of low pressure, in attempting to do so, it may push against obstacles. It this case, it tries to lift the car. By giving the air a clean pathway between the two extremes, it doesn't attempt to LIFT the car. You may want to read up on Bernoulli's Principle before you attack your car with another saw.
