He prolly just knows nothing about cars. My boss'* dad, the owner of the company I work for believes the same thing. He says, "the car company made it the way they did for a reason." He knows nothing about cars or machinery. Thats what his son and myself are for. However, this same person started his own company 4 years ago from scratch and is now worth over a million. Hes pretty dumb, huh?

As far as this kid goes, maybe he owns a dodge stratus and when he put an intake on his tranny blew.

I did try to reason with him though. Teeling him hed get better mileage. But he still persisted that GM makes the best cars from the factory and that the truck is great just the way it is. I tryed to get him to put an intake on his 2003 GMC Sierra 6.0L. I feel it could use more air when hauling those 10,000lb. loads.

I'd believe you except for one thing. Why do we believe they discontinued the 3800...because it was lasting too long and people weren't buying new cars. They don't want cars lasting 13+ years, its bad for business. What good is a happy consumer if they aren't investing in your company more than every 13 years?
Unfortantly those consumers are now investing in toyota,nissian and honda
