Default Venting

I'm venting right now because i'm pissed off. Yesterday i spent all day cleaning my bonnie making it all look beutiful and put in a full tank of gas. then today, my sister, who is home from college, throws a fit and gets the car for the day. she takes it over to a friends house who is having construction done and my car gets full of mud. it looks like she has been off roading with it. she leaves the tank at 1/4 and leaves mcdonalds wrappers in it. i have to clean it all over again. So tonight, i wanna take my car out and she throws another fit saying that it'* half her car. and cries to my parents and gets the car again for tonight. i say that if she puts money in to maintain in and actually tries to keep the car looking nice that she can consider it "half" her car and use it if she wants. sry for this, just venting like i said. what do u guys think, am i right? should she be able to take the car whenever she wants? or have to work to be able to use it? arg.... i'm so angry right now that it'* funny. LOL

Grrr...older sisters....I don't have an older sister.

Both of the siblings are younger so I'll be long gone before they ever touch my car...hang in there for now, let her have her fun on your behalf.

Your parents probably realize the best way to shut her up is give her the car..to bad its you and the car that pay the price

I agree. She should AT LEAST bring it back the way she got it. Sparkling clean in and out and full of gas, er, fuel.

ya, i got some 3 inch aluminum ducting that can twist and bend to form a 90 degree turn. i twisted it to make it straight and then turn at the end. then i added a $20 cone filter from pep boys on the end. ohh, and i used a gasket sealer to seal the openings where the aluminum twists and bends. it works pretty well, doesn't leak any air. i noticed a sound difference right away and i gained some low end power. i like it a lot and it only cost me about $25.00
