Just wanted to see what they had to offer. Talked with the owner, told him what I own (87t) and he replies "those motors are only good for about 350hp tops." Guess I won't be doing any business there. Just thought some of you guys would get a kick outta that.

I heard something similar to that. There was one day me and my friend had stopped by looking for guages for our cars (89 Supra & 87RX-7). Then i don't know how we got into talkin about the weight of each car and he proceeds to say,"man don't worry, your supra is lighter than the rx-7 so weight is on your side". When i heard that, i said oh sh*T i left my car on, and then bounced.

While we are totally off-topic lemme tell you what I saw today. Out at a local Stoner/Head Shop I had just parked my car out front of with my girlfriend and her friend, A brand new honda prelude parks next to me with altezza taillights and whips into the parking spot in reverse like a super hot shot!. So he parks his girfriend gets out, he gets out closes his door and his car starts to roll away!!! He had to run open the door hop in and catch it!! Me my GF her friend and this guys GF all were laughing hysetericaly at this guy!!! It totaly made my night seeing a hot shot ricers car start to roll away on him!

Anyways, back on topic, I hear ya on how local shops can be totaly retarted. Like how one time some guy in a neon tells me I got a nice car and says he worked at a dodge dealership than continues to ask me how big my "blow-off" was... I turned away trying not to die laughing.

First of all, I gotta tell you guys about this one. My friend and I were going to a Borders (for magazines, or whatever my friend got), and saw two Honda Civic Hatchbacks parked way out at the end of the lot, parked next to eachoter (obviously a team, they call themselves Team Squad), so my friend decides to park next to them. My friend drives a Jetta, '95, all you can see that he has, is an exhaust, tach, and a couple of gauges. When we came out to his car, there was a note on the windsheild that said, "You f*@#%en ricer! Don't ever park next to the sqwad again!" and at the bottom they had the nerve to say "JDM for Life!" That last one I don't get in accordance to the first sentence. Some people are just un-explainable (I guess that's what happens when people of the same family get together). And also, he said ricer, it's a Volkswagen, isn't that german?

Second, to stay on topic, my friend and I did the same thing, went into a shop to see if they knew what they were talking about. Of course, they didn't. My friend owned a dsm at the time. He was asking about a camshaft. He said he was going to get 272 degree cams from Extreme Motor Sports, the girl behind the counter says, "I don't know if they make one for your car." If you are going to work at a performance shop, KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!! And to top it off, this performance shop "specializes" in imports, american cars, AND 4X4's. What kind of place does that? And they are now out of business.

Guys, you need to pick up Turbo and High tech for Feb. It has two good sections on how not to get punk'd. I think it should help.

VW's are "beer buckets", they're not rice mobiles. I've had suvs and lowriders park in backwards next to me when I park in backwards, doesn't phase me. Unless it's a BMW, then I just get pissed off.

Well, that's your average civic owner for you. They think they are the best no matter how many times they got whoopedon and how many unpainted body parts they have on their car

The best is here in iowa...
my friend owns a shop here in iowa, and of course with competition for business comes rivalry.........

The guy across town is an older douche bag.. put a mullet on him and he'd blend in like joe dirt...
anyways he likes to talk shit bout our shop....says we all show no go...and we don't know nuttin bout performance....
here is a list of his cars....
1. (don't remember the year) ford escort with 125 shot of NAWWWZZ...(sure buddy you a winner) supposedly ran 12's..haha.....nope....he got smoked by my buddy in his dsm with 14's
2. (he got a bit better) 1st gen eclipse gsx...but he riced the fucker out....muffler pointing to the ground at a 45 deg angle..big black aluminum wing....he ran a low 14 and was more respectable
3. 2nd gen rx-7......witha 350.......he pulls up to the town fair pops his hood expecting people to walk by to oooooo, and aaaaaaaaa......as he sat there on the bench.....did i mention he had a decal that covered the whole freggin car?......the best part is.........he didn't even do the swap himself...we find that a friend of ours (whom had a friend that owned it previous) said that his friend did all the work to it..and then sold it to the rival shop owner..all the rival shop owner did was put the big ass decal on the side and put 17's on it....
4TH....and most important

I MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN TO MENTION THAT THE DOUCHE NAMED HIS SHOP "THE FAST AND FURIOUS SPEED SHOP"
lol
