I wanted to create this thread so that I can post up interesting builds and automotive questions that I might have that dont warrent a thread of there own. I have had this idea for a while and wanted to see if it would work out. All opinions are welcome and feel free to post as many pictures of other cars as you like or links to interesting builds people are doing. Just try and keep the insults to a minimun so it doesnt get locked.

Anyway I will start off.

Did anyone see the new pictures of the Ferrari California? At first I didnt like the car design but now that I have seen actual photos, I am starting to come around on it. Price is a bit much though, as it is with any other Ferrari I guess.







:drool:




Many more pictures here:

I have always wondered though,what does the SF stand for on the Ferrari emblem?

On page 97 now. The shifter's ruining the entire car. It's funny how old men have ricer tastes. :D Let's see if he cuts it down a little bit.
Dont want to ruin the surprise but that shifter thankfully is changed

Thank you all so much. Build threads are the shit, I can read through them all day without getting bored :bow:

Here are a couple that I liked:

This guy buys two bmws and starts ripping apart his perfectly good e46 m3 to do a complete conversion.

This dude does all of his own custom carbon fiber work. There are like 30 pages of him making some rad shit!

Hmmm...

I've been considering building my own turbo kit for a long while now. My friend built his own turbo kit entirely by himself for his Firebird. The only issue is that even doing it yourself it still runs about 3 grand. :( But if I were going to build my own kit for my Type-S then I'd absolutely buy that turbo tbh. I considered rebuilding one from a junkyard for a while. Anyhow, that's incredible.

i want to build a turbo kit, too. for the chinese turbos, they will work as long you run an oil restricter and do a proper 1 week, light driving break-in period. the supra community loves the T70 turbos, and the general quality of the turbos have gotten better over the years. there will always be a few out there that will fail, but compared to the vast amount these things are sold, consider it a rare instance. for any one who doubts the reliability of ebay turbos, check this guy out who has done trials with a t04e on his civic. http://spdweb.net/
