The water flooding is crazy. The rivers and lakes around here got so overflooded that it rised up into the streets. Also all the major roads were closed like a mofo.

Hope to see yous at ne2k7.

^will do haha... i was going to buy an msp racing intake from one member, but he decided not to sell it so i figured i would just save my money and buy one when ever i build the motor some time down the road.

the car has drag radials on it right now, but if the car doesnt hook ill probably use the money i had saved for an intake on a ccw drag package.

thanks

Cause he is 18, in school and his parents paid for the car, and he is dumping his life savings into this

H8R!!!

Looks good scott.

Turbosupra... Is it a problem since my GF bought me my supra?
The guy isn't a hater, he is a realist. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that an 18 year old with a 25-30k car who can throw 10k+ in parts and labor at it isn't paying for it himself while he is going to college unless he is getting financial assistance elsewhere. Either that or he is piling up some serious credit card debt.

And to your second question it would only be a problem if you were acting like you bought it yourself. No one cares who buys the cars, people just get pissed when people try to pass it off as their own. As in they paid for it with their own money that they actually earned the hard way. A lot of people on this site are spoiled kids who saw F+F and got their parents to buy them a Supra...

IIRC, Scott didn't come on here bragging about anything ,just to share some pics of his car and where it's at in the build process. As for turbosupra, realist or not, there was no need to post that comment. my .02

Ease back on the haterade there people. If he really doesn't deserve the car, he will crash it in short order with all that power on tap. If he is worthy, he can enjoy it in good health, no matter who paid for it.

Right now, it is looking good. What is all that foam stuff in the trunk though? Homemade sub enclosure?
