Its not about make someone lose just to make them lose. America has a trade deficit of 1 Trillion dollars per year. That's $ 3000 for every person in america. Every year. Stretch that out over a 30 year mortgage. My Condo was 100K
Its time to stop giving away money to....eh, make money. Yeah. I...
I've honestly had it with overpriced, overspec'd cars. The civic is a land barge and the Fit is a bit too cheapish and souless.
Side effect of these increases in prices i hope happen, but prolly wont.
Smaller, cheaper, cars, but with care put into the engineering. Del-sol, CRX Si, 2nd gen...
Im sorry to anyone who was interested that PM'd me, its been a hectic month.
Our baby, who was due on Aug 20th, decided to come 4 weeks early. That turned into a 2 week hospital stay for momma and the baby.
We are all now back home and getting back to normal.
Ktuner is back up for sale.
I'm selling my Ktuner V1.0 Cutting back to the stone age for a few years to save money. So this and the Civic along with many things are going.
I have a Heatware account. OCdF4i
Pm me if you want my ebay account. It has about 300 feedbacks, 100% Account is 15 years old. Paypal only...
It doesnt work that way. We dont know what Honda considers to have (passed the strees test). My guess is, if the 300hp number is legit, then you can beat the hell out of the engine all day at 300 and still have it be fine. And not, run 302 HP and get a snapped rod. Which are most certainly forged.
You could always throw in a new tranny if it goes out at 80k. What are they going to run, $500 for low mileage one on ebay? I saw one for $600 last night. But yeah if you have to categorize things in ways like (if you plan on keeping it past X amount of miles before pawning it of on some sucker...
I've been wandering the same thing. That 10 speed auto should be good for 300hp/tq minimum. Less drivetrain lag as well. That is the tranny you were talking about, right?
You would have to be pretty dam old to remember those days. My old man is 60 and grew up fooling with 2 speed powerglides...
How is yours holding up?
Are you still running 25 psi? Mine is doing just fine on muh base tune (although i never drive it, i just turned 8k miles) I've been thinking about turning the boost up a bit when it finally warms up.
