      Is coming back to the US! I am sure if you are an avid drift fan you already know this. There are four events scheduled in the US for 09. One of them happens to be in Chicago...My roommate and I are going. August 1st
      baby!

      Also, since said roommate lived in chi-town for 3 years, he has our whole stay there planned out. I guess I have no choice in the matter.

    • The next Nissan.

      exploder39

      I have decided to get another car.


      No I am not selling the S13.


      I will most certainly be picking up another Nissan.

      Most likely an S14....but, possibly a 350Z. One my family friends owns a dealership and can get me an 03 Z with 50k on it for under 8k.....if I so choose... Oh choices.


      I will let you know.

    • Raise.

      10 years ago

      exploder39

      I found out yesterday that I was selected for a training course at work. upon completion of the course I get a $2 raise. Plus, my 18 month eval/ raise is coming up so there is another $.75 raise. Then at the end of the year we get a 3% cost of living raise (plant wide) and a 5% plant wide production raise.

      Sooo...I will be making over $21 an hour by January. I <3 my job.

      I guess the 240 will be getting a lot more goodies then planned this year.

      Ohhh, I make these btw

      this is a 42 meter blade, one of the three our plant makes and the ones I usually work on. Someday I will take some pictures for you fools.

      I heard about the blizzards, flood, roads closing, sandbags, UND shutting down for a few days, and other general mayhem.

      Should I mention it's been about 74 degrees average over the time I've been here? :)

      Going to head out Sunday morning so I can see another Sioux game and party with some friends.... but you're right on the 370Z (damn!!)

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      Oh yes. It is a 2008 SS turbocharged. 260 hp, laps the 'Ring at 8:22, which is faster than the Z. I mean, not bad... for a cobalt.

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      sooo, the Z is gone then?

      Have you SEEN the APS extreme? 800 hp... without an aggressive tune?! Come'on now... And you really can't go wrong with a JWT (Jim Wolf Technology) kit. Greddy would have to be third on my list of TT kits. But, truly my goal for the car is a solid 400-450whp. Its a very streetable number, and good enough to beat alot of anything around... especially if I could drop about 500 lbs...

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      A) Greddy is defunked.
      B) APS Extreme, or JWT 700BB twin turbo kit.

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      Def man. If i get the new job I am looking at, the VQ is gonna get a boost job ASAP. I am thinking the Turbonetis single turbo kit looks good, or the STS rear mount turbo. $5k can buy me 400 whp pretty easy.

      Ig just ordered the last part tonight. FedEx is takin an eternity for the first parts ordered... the delivery date is 6 days from the drop off date... thats so lame. Hopefully this other part is in quick though. got the tire on today, and got both the beads popped back on and the tires rebalanced. Should be ready for the body work toward the end of next week. I think I am going to wait and rive it around ripped up a bit though. I miss her too much.

      Nitrous would melt my engine.

      Baby steps man, I am not going to spend more than 2500 on my car, most of my upgades will be exhaust, rims, tires, and suspension work.

      I am saving up for a 350Z for after I get out of college.

    • burgundy

      Lemme know if you decide to sell that Emanage. Shoot me a good price and I will consider it. Funds are low right now, with the possibility of finally moving out and getting the car fixed again.

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      Its a 2001 SE 2.0. Pretty slow, but has a good motor in it.

      Sucks about the 240... I was thinking about the possibility of getting rid of the Z and getting an RB swapped 240, but I like the modern touches in the Z.

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      I am more in the family than any SE-R since 2002. I have the SR20 i my Sentra. Much better than that crap they call the QR25. So yes... I am in the Nissan Family still.

      How is the 240 coming?

      Umm, not been up to much, finally found myself a good girl, got the Z, broke the Z, fixed the Z, crashed the Z, thats about it, lol.

      Not only that but you two really did just meet, so it is understandable.
