  1. Would anyone try lab grown meat?

    Oh they're already trying it here in Colorado (the state being one of the largest meat product producers in the world). But they're not even talking tax - they are skipping the sin tax all together and introducing legislation which will be on the next ballot to make it illegal to have any...
  2. Would anyone try lab grown meat?

    Yeah sure I'd try it. I'm skeptical but I'd try it. But I have to wonder if our palettes are conditioned to normal meats? Much in the same way many people prefer wild caught fish to farmed fish (myself included), many people might just prefer the taste of normal cows, pigs, and chickens simply...
  3. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    No doubt, I thought about that too.
  4. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    It felt like instant regret and complete stupidity. I saw from a distance the broken up pavement but dismissed it as a chuckhole against all better judgement, then when I realized I was in for a ride I slammed on the brakes but it was far too late. Honestly the actual feeling wasn't too...
  5. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Took it back to the shop my insurance company chose, for the third time. I destroyed two struts and hubs, three wheels, and the front bumper when I hit a set of railroad tracks at 70mph. I'm very familiar with said railroad crossing and it used to be smooth as glass. In the couple of days since...
  6. Spool time question

    That's correct. Again the only FI car I had was an '88 Mustang, but the concept is still the same. I made maybe 2lbs at 3,000 RPM in the Fox. I've seen enough dyno charts here to know that on the coyotes it's essentially the same story with the turbo and centri kits. Maybe a member with...
  7. Spool time question

    From my experience with a centri Fox Body and from reading many, many, posts here - a centri, unless spun to the moon, will not feel more powerful below 3,000 RPM than a turbo kit. I have seen many posts that say both the Hellion twin 62s and centris come into boost at a noticeable amount around...
  8. Can we have a funny meme thread? (NO POLITICS!)

    I used to live near a prison and yes signs like this were posted along the roads in the area for about a 10 mile radius. It was almost a daily occurrence that I would see tourists stop and take pictures with the signs. Personally I never saw the humor in it but whatever floats people's boats.
  9. Something you don't see every day..

    There's several Zimmer's running around my area. Thugs and wannabe rappers love the damn things (around here anyway) for their faux Rolls Royce look. But yeah, it's just a fox body Mustang.
  10. This is why I don’t trust anyone else building my engine

    They do make good money off sponsorships. But what many people don't realize is a lot of these YouTubers have their channels set up as LLCs. Many of them also probably push the accompanying tax laws to their limits. I doubt a single vehicle in Hoovie's or Cleetus's fleet is in their personal...
  11. How strong is PPF?....This strong!

    Gotcha, I'm thinking of a different brand I tried about 5 years ago. It was definitely spray on application only. Very difficult to apply and remove. It worked but I wouldn't keep it on a garage queen - it just looked unnatural. Way more suitable for track days.
  12. How strong is PPF?....This strong!

    It's been a long time since I tried it, but I believe it was called Road Warrior. It's shit. Does everything it says - except come off. Good luck and take about a week off from work to try every method known to humanity to get it off, then give up and peel it one little chip at a time until your...
  13. Other than a mustang, what else do you drive??

    1999 Dodge Durango 1977 Yamaha XS750 1990 Harley FXRS 1976 Can-Am Qualifier 175 1975 Honda CB750 (current project)
  14. Wax? Beading? I hate it. What gives?

    Polymer waxes/sealants typically provide 4-6 months of UV protection. They will shine just fine, but you might not get that uber wet glassy look you got with the ceramic wax.
  15. Repainting hood or other body panel yourself?

    Approximately $600 I think. The shop redid it for $1000. But I also rented a booth and did other things you can skip. I also needed two different primers, one for the bumper (plastic) and a high build primer for the hood. I bought enough paint for two coats of base and five coats of clear (plan...
  16. Repainting hood or other body panel yourself?

    Metallic takes a lot of experience to get right. The application as to be perfect. Flat surfaces, like your hood, are the hardest too. I would pay a shop honestly. I have painting experience and I painted the silver metallic bumper and hood on my '99 Durango. The bumper looked perfect. Despite...
  17. Wax? Beading? I hate it. What gives?

    You can switch to polymer waxes, which excel at sheeting and not beading. I am fortunate to be able to keep my car in the garage, but if it stayed outside I would switch from my favorite wax to a polymer wax just to avoid the water spotting issue. These are some sheeting waxes, but I'm not sure...
  18. What made you order or buy a new Mustang?

    I believe you should try and buy one big ticket item brand new, in life. Whether it's a car, a motorcycle, a boat, or a house. If you are able, you should buy something like that brand new at least one time. Just the luxury of having something that nobody else has had before you, and knowing...
