It looks like a very nice job but the door shape doesn't exactly match the look of the car :P

 

Yeah, pity, that.  I do like the girly baby shark nose though, kinds cute.

Not to mention, much more precious and delicate than your entire collection.

Of course she is, that's what's so dangerous about her. Now she's all sweet and wants to kiss me on the cheek, but before long she'll be scheming and manipulating. wink.gif In all seriousness, she's awesome, one of the most manageable and intelligent toddlers I've ever seen. My wife actually said, "you know, if I knew for a fact that we'd get another like her, I'd be interested in having one." I looked at her, "You know our luck." She nodded, "We'd end up with Lucifer in diapers."

Oh okay.  Well C**** would kick that little skank's ass.


Now that I think about it, I'd worry more about my wife shooting her. lol Even if it is a .25 cal peashooter, she'd probably empty the mag.

Given how dirt cheap you can buy older Boxsters, I can't see how it would be worth it. Not a bad kit, though.

Oh I don't think she'll really start to worry you until she's able to have some of her own.  Then, you're gonna be in perpetual freak out.  That's when you start doing super stupid things, like making sure the boys in town know you got carbon fiber gun racks in all of your cars.

See what I mean?  Once the initial shock wears off in about a second or two, the whole "dat b***h" instinct is gonna kick in and they'll go to town.

Well I guess for people that already have the donor Jetta (and a s***load of time on their hands), it might be something to do... idle hands and what not.

 


 

BTW Magick and Billy, bookmark this for now:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8xZ0YKVNSQ  No need to watch it now, just bookmark it.  In about 50 years, it'll be WAYYY more exciting than it is now.

Yesterday, I went to my friends house and he showed me a packaging he recently received from Bisimoto Engineering.

It contained a heat shielding intake gasket, 16 titanium valves and 16 titanium valve springs which will all go into his Honda Jazz/Fit (GE). What's missing though is that he sent the camshaft to Bisimoto for a stage 3 regrind but hasn't arrived in Indonesia yet.

His mechanic told him that when everything is done and completed, he should expect around 20% of power increase at the top end and a redline of 8200 rpm.

Considering the current engine upgrades that he put in his car:

Dastek Piggyback ECU; K&N Air Filter; HKS Silent Hi Power Muffler; Engine Blueprint and Balancing; Port and Polish and I think even more...

He should expect around 180HP or more from the 1.5L NA i-Vtec Engine.

I can't wait till it's done!

His car tops out at around 215kph (133mph) on the highway. So with the upgrades, I think he could hit around 230kph with a stock final gear. 

About engine reliability and fuel economy though, well that's another concern. rolleyes.gif

biggrin.gif  K&N, HKS, and Mugen are like the holy trinity of Honda tuning mods.

Yup biggrin.gif

His Jazz sounds very good too, also extremely smooth. I once drove it for a short time and the engine response was very sweet and very responsive. smile.gif

I can't really imagine how it will be when the Bisimoto parts are installed.

 

Oh yeah FYI, an unmodified Jazz/Fit in Indonesia (or in the Asian market) actually produces more power (120HP) than their US or EU counterparts.

You sorry motherneffers! biggrin.gif Where's King Nef, winky? I figured he'd be in on this action.


The R8 is a real head-scratcher. Guy wrecks R8, it's all cosmetic except for one wheel, files insurance claim. They send a check to cover repairs, doofus spends check, thinking he can cover the repair later out of his pocket (for a lot less). He runs into financial problems, he lives in an $800 /mo apartment but drives a $180k car, which he originally paid for in cash (drug dealer?), and never gets it fixed properly. I wish I'd gotten pics of before they cleaned the car, because apparently he had it decked out all "gangsta NFS-style". The tires on it are laughable, they're too large and rub the wheel wells when you drive over bumps, and he completely nullified the car's warranty by chip tuning it and then taking it in for servicing at the dealership... it's all just one big clusterfrak. But I bought it (will buy it) because he made me an offer I couldn't refuse (and it has a 6-spd manual). I don't care about the warranty anyway

Might as well make an Super Powerful R8 since there is no warranty wink.gif
