    So what do you think the difference in valve train component weight is? I would say 3-4 lbs at the most.

    Honda 3.5

    Exactly why I mounted my turbo on the side of the motor instead of the back like most. Also put a full size Optima down on the floor in front of the rear seats in the middle.

    Newbie I just re-read my post and thinking you were comparing na to na. Without the turbo certainly would make a bigger difference.

    I would question that much weight difference. I have a vq35de V6 Nissan which I am guessing is probably close to the Honda and weight. I took it down and weighed it on a certified scale in 2005 when I built my car. I weighed with everything other than an intercooler at the time and it was within 40 lb. Add the intercooler hardware and all the crap and I believe the V8 and turbo V6 were only 20 lb difference. Certainly agree on the point that the weight distribution gets extended with a V8 and extra cylinders. Powerband and engine braking of course are very different also.

    parking ticket advice

    So we are in Ottawa Canada on vacation and yesterday visited Parliament. Actually went into the gallery and was able to listen to them argue. Global warming was the topic yesterday. Anyway we paid $20 to park from 3 to 6 p.m. and got back to the car at about 7:30. Of course the $85 fine portion of the sign is as you come in and who was paying attention. You are looking at the person in the booth. The little kiosk where you pay is on the other side showing all the fees. You would have to walk around to the other side of the sign to see where the fine is. Anyway do I call and argue it? Not pay it and dispute it on the credit card bill when it comes through? to me we should have been charged another $6 for the evening parking. If we would have known they were going to charge this much we could have easily come back earlier and had dinner after moving the car.

    Great advice, input, and fun in this thread. In all seriousness I would not want to stick the rental company with dealing with this company on our behalf. I will pay it and move on. So much to see here and the Obama cookie thing was posted in fun.

    parking ticket advice

    Called Impark and the best they will do is reduce it to $63.45. $10.00 reduction. Problem is I guarantee without reading it my rental agreement says Alamo would pay any fines that come in on our behalf. Plus on a few forums people say they would charge an admin fee. So then I have $96.05 plus admin fee. And who knows what other charges they could add. Money won't break us, it is just I hate getting screwed. Looks like I don't have choice. 7 days to pay.

    Interesting info. Car was rented from Alamo and I wonder if they would be notified in a short time. Doubt it. But I am sure there is something in our rental agreement if they get notified from Impark. Total rip off trying to grab big fees. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/marketplace-parking-private-lots-1.3851956 http://forums.redflagdeals.com/impark-ticket-dispute-1432840/

    Crazy things you see in Glamis

    So I am going to start a thread to post all the crazy mishaps you see in Glamis. We know with social media and mobile phones so many things are now getting filmed. This thread will most likely get bumped at holidays. Feel free to add. Smart girl eats sand Truck crashes jumping down Olds. Greg Biffle black bag project Great to see and amazing how many McPenis'es leave their trash.

    https://www.glamisdunes.com/invision/index.php?/forums/topic/40789-budget-funco-gen-4/&page=6&tab=comments#comment-3473492 My car is a apart while I am re-painting the panels. Here are some current pics. I used the hose with braid in it this time. The short piece at the top is nice. Fuel bubbles in there for just a second before spitting out the overflow. I just use an electric pump and jugs. Also have a drain hose on the other side which is very handy.

    I would not trust a float Style to holdup. At one point I had used a centroid ohm style like this. even that failed and I went back to a sight tube . Just change out the clear fuel line every few years
