  1. Good progress on the wagon! Get that mustang muffler tucked in, and have the shop make a meaty looking 3" stealth turn-down. Menacing yet classy. It's a trend I'm seeing with this car.
  2. I own a 20 year old Subaru spaceship, too. I pride myself on my questionable vehicle purchases. Hi Brian! Hi everybody! Luke, I'm thinking of going to a set of the first gen forged Alcoa 20's on the barge, with 275's all around. Thoughts? Opinions? They look like the twinny-twins, but are obviously more normal sized.
  3. I know. I have it in my car. The sub cuts bass at anything over 1/3 volume. Meanwhile, the highs will make your ears bleed at anything over 1/2 volume. :-o
  4. That blasted sub mute.... robbing me of precious bass.
  5. All prices are negotiable. Make an offer, and you might just get some nicely priced parts!

  7. Haven't been around much lately. Kinda bummed that my Taurus is all stock-ish again. I did, however, pick up a new play toy, in February. Some of you have seen it on the Facebook, but here's some photos. The car came with an AWFUL set of exhaust tips, so I installed these, from a 2010 Impreza STi hatchback: The car is a 1995 Subaru SVX LSi. I bought the car in Tucson, AZ, and drove it back to Houston. It turned 191,000 miles, this past sunday. It drives like a dream, and scoots around pretty good, for a porky gal. Lowering springs and a new rear swaybar are on the way. Going to get rid of the magnaflow muffler that's on it, and frankenstein (in true FFVulcanPowah fashion) an 08+ STi hatch exhaust onto the car, and fab a catless y-pipe. It should flow well, and will be nice and quiet.
  8. Sharp lookin' car, Brian. Great purchase. I'm in awe of the condition of the headlights and tail lights. And that digital dash...oof! It makes me think dirty, dirty things. Interested in some period-appropriate shoes for Scarlett? I may have an idea... (and a set for sale) Do it.
  9. :lol: It was the bus driver, or another one of the riders that was going to beat the dumb out of her. Trying to wreck the bus while a bunch of people are on it (and around it). No ma'am. You have just forefeited your right to be treated like a civilized human being.
  10. I had it done in may, because I thought my brother was going to rent the car for the summer. Stock trans was still okay, but according to the shop, everything was WAY loose (age), and the electronics were brittle and near death (age). For the most part, it's a decent build. Shifts aren't as firm as i'd like, but the downshifts are vastly improved. Still going to swap for an MTX, one day.
  11. Drove the car a bit, today. Put some fresh E85 in it. The whole front end just feels loose after the trans re-build. Gonna address that issue when I finally get around to re-lowering the car. I know, for sure, that the subframe is shifted because the driver's side front wheel has more negative camber to it than when the car was lowered 2+ inches. Ugh... I also think one too many intake backfires (thank you, E85 cold starts...) has killed my PCV. The car is leaking oil out of the back valve cover, but that could just be the age of the car catching up. 177k miles on original VC gaskets...yeah, it's probably time for a fresh set. May throw on a set of powdercoated G1 covers, for grins. It's about time I did some decent mods to this car. P.S. I freaking HATE my trans rebuild. The 1-2 and 3-4 shifts are okay, but the 2-3 shift is sloppy, at best. I'm going to see what I can to about getting that improved, otherwise I'm going to blow the f*cker up, and have it re-built again, under warranty.
  12. There are at least 10 on the car. Like Brian said, I refuse to count, because it will just upset me. The plastic "door guards" that sit on the INSIDE of the door's curve. and are positioned to be completely useless as guards, have zero dings, scratches, or door-related injuries. Good job, Ford.
  13. Get rid of everything on the trunk. Including the lock.
  14. That's pretty wicked. It sounds like a V8 and a V10 at the same time.
  15. 'Murrica. God damn that is a gorgeous car.
  16. Shosource coilovers. MTX swap w/ diffy. Turbo. You'll thank me later. (until something explodes)
  17. I love how the Taurus is sitting in the background like "Das b***hes...." The good news is, you probably won't have to deal with heinous transmission issues in the Audis. The bad news is, you get to deal with odd "Volkswagen" issues that will pop up. Regardless, both are nice lookin cars.
  18. Yes, the 2" inlet/outlet is fine for your car.
  19. Definitely liking the black roof and trunk idea. The centis look great! See if you can track down a white bumper at a junkyard. Don't do the bra. Let those glorious headlights be the star of the show. Trust me on this one.
