    Hmmm... Okay...

    Car Thread

    Had a couple of cars on the dyno recently that put out decent power. This S2000 made 474whp at 15 PSI and went on 2 days later to get the fastest time of the day at his next event. Lower curve is my S2000 at ~9 PSI. This one is an STi with a built motor and 31 PSI of boost on Gen 2 GTX 3582. Also, not too long ago, we flat-lined the dyno with the Taurus SHO.
  3. I grew up in Phoenix, but I spent about 8 years in Omaha after living in Colorado for 7 years. The heat+humidity in Omaha can be rough. It always seemed to downpour at night (and wake me up), then get really hot the next day and super humid. Winter caught me off guard. With not having a real winter growing up and then getting used to Colorado winters, Omaha was brutal for me and the reason why I finally left. I moved back to Colorado 4 years ago... I was trying to go back to Phoenix, but the wife wasn't on board. I get out to Omaha about twice a year in the summer, which I can do. My wife is from North of Grand Island, so she makes the trip often.

    LOL... My phone always knows better than me.

    Anything (ATV) worth having, to serve multiple roles, I'd plan on $8-10k, new. I live in the mountains, so my stuff gets used pretty regularly. In addition to plowing, I have a trailer to pull behind the ATV/UTV's to help with work around the property. We'll use them to go somewhere local as well... And, they're also just fun to go out and tool around in.

    Absolutely. I got rid of my previous plow machine when I bought these as I didn't want to maintain more than 2 machines, but the 570 will become the new plow machine.

    What I Got Today!

    Nice, I looked into the Honda briefly as I am a big Honda fan (not fanboi). I specifically opted to not get the turbo model on these purchases. I didn't want any "turbo car problems". After tuning countless boosted race and street cars, owning a bunch, I know what happens. I wanted to focus on getting out on the trails. And, I don't feel like my tuned 900 is lacking power, even at 8-9k ft ASL.
  8. No. I've tuned a lot of Subarus and had an STi for 10 years. The water pump is not part of the timing belt tract on the EJ motors. I haven't looked at the FA motors, so I can't comment on them.
  9. Our Highlander was like this. Had the water pump fail on me on a 0F degree morning. Noticed the heat went away and then looked at the needle rising. Pulled over and got a tow. It didn't cause the timing to slip, however, if you're clueless and keep drive, yeah, it's done... But same with overheating. I'm just glad I had the car that day and not my wife, since it was hers. She would have cooked the motor or introduced some valves to some pistons.

    What I Got Today!

    I got a few toys recently. I picked up a RZR S 900 for me and the wife and an Ace 570 for my daughter. I bought her and Ace 150 for Christmas and she's already surpassed it. I also bought 2 DynoJet PowerVision 3 units for tuning. I have an OTS map on the Ace, which gave it a slight bump and I tuned the 900 myself, which the increase was actually pretty substantial (I'll tune hers as well). Took them out on the trails just a couple days after purchase and my daughter is hooked!
  11. Yes, I still have it. I'll send you a PM.
  12. K22's and K77's are gone. The K55's are still available.
  13. No need for conduit as now that there are holes and I've seen behind the drywall, I can pull anything through. Yes, I used thinset behind the Hardibacker.
  14. I don't have to take it apart, really. Just cut two zip ties and stand up an inductor that's closest to another and zip tie it back down. I'm actually pretty good with electronics, but it's been awhile since I went down to the component level (which is what I did on Active Duty Air Force, quite a few years ago). These days, we just replace cards, and at that, I'm not the one doing it. I'm not overly concerned how they are now either, so...
  15. One side is complete. I was working on the opposite side today, when I had time. The front will test my skills up until I am above the mantel. I've only tiled one other time, and it wasn't up a wall not cutting around things.
