I just realized you're DBW...are you tuned?
yeah, I know it...but if you predict the loss of grip, it ain't even scary...
the V has supers...fuckin pricey.

I should really downsize my fleet...it's pricey trying to keep good shit on all of them.

Yes, DBW was on 2006-09's.

K&N FIPK intake and KTuner. VTEC window from 4000 to 5500 rpms along with a couple other little changes. Exhaust is stock, I think it sounds great AS IS especially with that lower VTEC crossover, gives it a good grumble.

funny, I have been through a few...had the invidia on my silver one...
had the miltek on this one...
i had fipk that i removed because i believe it added to the heatsoak and loss
of low end grunt around town...

i think i have the 200 count high flow cat now and the 38mm UK modded oem exhaust...it is perfection.
I'm jealous of your ability to easily tune.

It definitely gets affected by heat soak

But the sound is... just unbeatable.

I've been tempted by the UK mod

I've heard it! Several of the Oregon S2Ki guys had that, the Tanabe and Skunk2 exhausts.

When i had the s2k, i had always wanted the Tanabe Medellion. I like the OEM look and the "quiet" sound.

I had Buddy Club spec III for about 3 months and i almost became deaf. But it was so light that the car got 1 inch higher after i installed it.

That Buddy Club exhaust is loud as hell..

If I do a full exhaust I might do the Tanabe but I'm going to focus my efforts on the seats. The leather is playing 'connect the dots' and I'd rather have mesh/suede like what the CR has.

my shifter boot is tearing...I will probably contact Jin to do some sort of yellow stitch something or other.
milltek was gorgeous but boomy bassy droney...
I sold that to fund the new top. I don't regret it at all.

Well I did some digging. No one has posted on any forum about the CR-Z except for this character. I'm amused at how 'upset' he is on the behalf of others. Meanwhile it's just crickets on the CR-Z forum.

Ken you're an asshole.
You blew the motor and you know it.
It's more shocking to me that Majofo's nickname is "The Motor" though, to be honest.

Maybe?

I have no idea. I'm more amused by this whole thing than anything else. Let's say I did 'blow the motor' as he claims. It would be the dealer's problem and between him and them. And they did look over the car carefully and drove it and were quite impressed with the quality of the workmanship and how friendly it was for daily driving. It's a solid car. If it were remotely practical then yes, people should be a bit skeptical of such a quick change. But having both an S2000 and a CR-Z in a two-car garage... something will give way at some point.

Yup... "the car dealership got scammed on a trade in" - says no one ever. It is always the other way around.
They have all the tools, people and knowledge to make a buying decision. The moment the car is bought it is 100% their problem.

Man if this dude isn't really serious about buying the car, he has a major bone to pick. Wtf

Who did you ban recently?

Or he is really thinking about it and flying in from out of town?

Really though, that's kinda why I hate selling private. You didn't, yet this dude tries to crawl up your butthole over nothing.

Ken, here's a good day trip. Up to Prescott and back, same route each direction; lunch in a restaurant town square on the edge of pine forest. Say the word and I'm game to do the drive.

In this day and age, one can understand being quite skeptical/cynical of all kinds of things. It's all too common.

But what is rare is the man manned up and owned up to what he did and took corrective action. My tip of the hat to you sir.
