      Yeah I think you need to right click and go to view image and use that link. I'm glad you came to your senses and got rid of the tiburon.

      Pretty sure tiburons are faster than the stock 1.8t's....but that doesn't take away from the fact that they are complete ****e.


      Good switch for sure.

      [IMG][/IMG]you think he would have taped them if he though it was that easy. plus the clips on the rings are always brittle as ****.

      welcome and dont listen to the haters the 2.8l is good platform to start and you can get good power out of it. You just have too look harder than a guy with a 1.8t.

      I've never had a problem taking apart a grill. Warm weather, cold weather never broke and clips. Also no one was hating on the 2.8, any he doesn't have a 2.8.

      i think my car was stock for like 3wks 4yrs ago i dont remember what that feels like. but my built 8v can dust a stock 2.8l or a 1.8t. Remembering that most stock equipment is ****, its not an accomplishment but its fun.
      the 2.7 in the tib makes good torque but above 110mph there flat. we have one at work( its a trade in) so i took it out and beat on it yesterday. do like the factory lsd in it though

      Dont hate Bryan . It could be worse.

      and agreed Tyler. Let me get these coilovers in next week and we'll try for something. Gotta take my wheels off soon though. Would lie to get some group pics before then. Going back to the stock S4 reps soon.
