Tops Ways To Know You Suck At Photography

1. You use multiple exposures and your cameras not on a tripod. You're a digital poser retard. Put down the CS4 and learn your f-stops. 2. You do not view blown highlights as a digital camera problem. The sky is not white you tard. You shouldn't have to use an inverted wave or ocean scene to simulate the sky. Its photography not CGI. 3. You think 16 mega-pixel is huge. 16mp is NOT ok for 54" photos. Prints are not posters. 75lpi is not ok. 4. You think black boarders are cool. Black boarders ma

I pulled the fuel pump and it comes on when the key is turned. I'm lost. Some one give me some direction

Best Upgrades For Volvo 850 Turbo?

What is the best upgrade for the money, for a 850 Turbo? RIP, CAIT, ECU? I have had 240's for the past 4 year and have had my 850 Turbo SW for a little over a year. I have been beating people in small V6's(Grand Prix, Monte's, Malibu's etc) GTI's, Honda's. I want to know what I need to beat a WRX or a SRT 4? I like the DIY thing so I will save money doing that, but where do I start, and what is the best thing to buy first so I can slowly build?

Code 3-2-5 On A '95 850 T5r

OK, I never used a Blog before. I have a technical questions on a 1995 Volvo 850 T5R. Engine would not start yesterday. I am not getting a pulse at the injector or a spark. I have fuel pressure. I used the probe and LED to flash a code out of A2 of 3-2-5, (ECU Memory Failure). I disconnected battery power, removed ECM, shook it, and replaced it. The car started and drove for about 1 mile before dying. Now, the ECU does not spit out any codes when the button is pushed (LED does not blink)

Starter Problem

Sometimes my car will start and sometimes it won't. I've heard that if you tap the starter a few times it will work. But will i have to get a new starter if the tapping doesn't work? Maybe it's the connection.

Question On Aftermarket Cd Player

I am new to the site and was wondering if anyone could help me with a question. I have a 98 C70 and i am gonna get an Aftermarket CD player installed in it. I was wondering if anyone might know if there are any parts or adapters that i might need to purchase to make it work. I have heard of people having trouble installing stereos in Volvos because the stock stereos are so complex. Anyways if anyone has any answers to my question please send me a message or comment on my blog. Thanks

One Week In

Just finished my fIrst week of driving a Volvo. I just bought a 2004 S60R/auto ( I wanted the 6 speed but the wife may have to drive it soo...) It is still a freakin' blast to drive and the look on the faces of the kids with the chipped-out Hoda Civics with the coffee can exhaust as I drive away form them at the light is priceless... what a sleeper this car is. I did the research and found that this model is a bit more to own per mile (+/- .70), the reliabiltiy, safety, and performace are compe

What's Already Done, And The Plans.

Just a few days ago, put the TD05 Turbo (running 15PSI) on (Mitsubishi GSX turbo) and a new Inter Cooler, the first few installs were S80 breaks, a hood scoop for the intake vents, and a Light throw push button five speed with a larger 5th gear, and an AutoMeter boost gauge. Next on the line up, new intakes (loosing a LOT of engine power because of the bad intakes, the turbo is basically blowing hot air instead of cold, the intercooler helps, but it's not as good as it could be) anti strut bars
