  1. By putting the exhaust manifold like that, Volvo decreases the horizontal dimension of the engine by 1-2" (assumption from pictures). They then have 2 more inches in the 'design' to make feasible the safety features, i.e. 2 more inches of crush zone. If I was designing cars with my engineering degree not medical devices, I'd do the same... Sorry speed. Safety wins.
  2. Actually my biggest problem right now is getting my trans fixed so I can stop having to borrow my ma's porsche to get to the golf course on a daily basis... However, my biggest concern is whether to elect the same old same old who will drive us god knows how much more in debt. Or to elect a virtual unkown with a very unpredictable outcome.. Its really a rough spot to be in.
  3. Actually Chuck, if I took into account my finances... then subtracted the 30k$ in debt the government has put me be association. Yes, I'd be in debt. Sorry that I'm just a college student and haven't started my path to riches yet. And no, the shrivalling dollar is probably why you can't get your sugar. Much as lots of people can no longer get their rice... because CHINA can't make a profit selling it here. WOW. When China can't afford to sell us RICE, we are doing something horribly wrong. Its one thing to suggest rediculous conspiracy theories about the government or our voyage to the moon, those hippie types truly are annoying. However, to disregard valid points in a discussion forum just makes you come off as closed minded.
  4. Every bit helps... I am going to take it you were joking though. But if you wanted to pay for the year that'd be 1825$. Shit, if we weren't just throwing that money away we wouldn't have to worry about any tax increases now would we...
  5. Technically, yes. Due to frivilous spending and an out of control government... W. is making the same mistakes his dad did. Why do republicans think that more debt is a good thing? The gov't collects a shitload of taxes. Is it that hard to spend within the budget? This high of a debt means that we are throwing 1.5B$ a day out the window that could be used to say... fight the war on drugs, pay our teachers more, make it so our bridges and levies don't collapse. Or to upgrade our aging sewer systems which are wreaking havic on the environment.
  6. If the national debt is increasing by 1.5B$ per day... dosen't that tell you guys we're doing something wrong. Thats 5$ per person, per day.
  7. Just wondering? How much is the country currently in debt? Has anyone seen anything that can justify us being THAT much in debt? Speaking about 60B$ for domestic projects... isn't that kinda a drop in the bucket with what we're dealing with here? And how could we possible expect to cut taxes and pay that off... Oh, this might be useful... And McCain thinks we can afford to stay there for a hundred more years?
  8. How many cars does one man need? More. Cool project man. Forged rods, going high boost on this one?
  9. Most likely, I'll go check it on the other computer next time I'm in the lab. That one is unrestricted :)
  10. Damnit matt... I'm going to have to go on VS from home? shiiiit.
  11. What can I say, my girls like it rough. Just ask Lauren. :lol:
  12. Haha, its all in good fun. I know. Just like if I brought up something about rod knock. And I meant retail, not what I paid for them. Shit, an engine for what I paid you'd TKO in like 2 minutes.
  13. .... JDM? More like DTM. Or whatever the Swiss market is, as they are Swiss made wheels. Did you know that for the cost of them you'd be able to build an engine that not even you could break? ... or well.... maybe. But seriously... MattB what are you hosting with? Cause I can't see any of them.
