There are tons of tunes out there. He could have loaded up a nice tune to increase the power, and also reduce the amount of smoke put out. He just chose a smokey tune.

This is true. A lot of people think that their 3500 dual-wheeled truck should pull like a Peterbilt. It would be close if they got the big diesel and not the baby diesel.

i have (atleast in my opinion) achieved the impossible. i have made a civic look nice lol.

the girlfriend is house sitting till tomorrow night and they have a garage and a driveway and outlets and a hose and stuff. (you take that **** for granted living in a house lol) so i went over and polished out our cars. her car is ungodly chipped up on the front cause her commute is highway and she lovvvves tailgating semis without mudflaps. i swear half of the paint on her bumper and hood is missing. along with all the chips in the windshield... but i made an effort anyway and it came out pretty nice lol.

also shined the tires and forced her to clean out her trunk so she can use it for its intended purpose.... she had 7 pairs of shoes, a bottle of liquid plumber a humidifier and pompoms.... sounds like a really weird night lol.

lol you should get in them. the first time i got in her car i hit my head on the roof and my legs wouldnt fit under the wheel. untill i tilted the seat raised the wheel and moved the seat all the way back. i can have the seat all the way back my foot to the floor (thats pretty often because you push the gas and the car just buzzes lol) and my knee is still bent... alot. if it was a standard id be screwed. as for outer dimensions, if our front bumpers are lined up her back bumper is at my back door. look at our tires on the pic of both our tails' lol.
