Bro, just loosen the bolt that holds the turbines in the turbos.

They spin faster. Effectively turning up the boost.

The GT500 is already capable of taking more boost from the factory, it's just a matter of getting the tune right.
I would much rather have the Z/28 than the base corvette. Without a doubt.

And that is why they're releasing the new Stingray.


EDIT: And if I wanted to make it faster, I'd just put stickers on it rather than risk extra boost. Don't you guys know anything about cars?

Bro, thats what I did. Popped the hood, found the turn up boost button and hit it 10-12 times.
IT'll still work right?

Unlike your POS Jap cars, American cars that come with F/I from the factory already have forged internals and could easily take a smaller pulley or different spring and be done with it. Hell, even the Boss, which is N/A comes with forged internals. It's all in the tune.

Plenty of import cars come with forged internals. There is still more than that. When you add more air you have to get more fuel to the engine too. Then turbos have an efficiency range to run in. Turning up the boost too much can damage the turbo. Then you have to worry about type of fuel and tuning. Also cooling system upgrades. Plus a lot more. Again, it's a lot more than just vin diesel hitting the boost button and shooting off.

I've never heard of anyone really worrying about their fuel system until they get way up in boost, whatever it may be for that specific car. I mean, if someone wants to up the boost a bit on a GT500, all they are going to do is swap a pulley. If they wanna do a huge turbo or twins, then yea, they'll put in bigger injectors and a different pump.

My car is naturally aspirated. It runs smoothly as an everyday driver with a little extra kick. Its fuel efficiency in the city is none-too-great, though. Overall, I would say it is a solid drive and I am happy with it.

While I do not know anything about "turning up the boost," forged engines, or the unit of measurement known as liters, I do know that I like cars.

If I were to have to choose between the new ZR-1 and ZL-1, I would choose neither because I cannot afford them or their associated insurance rates.

One time, a man pulled up next to my car at a stoplight and offered to drag race. I regretfully declined as this violates local traffic laws and would result in a violation if I were caught.

My girlfriend was saying she wants a toner printer, but I thought color toner is more expensive?

I do like putting the still-warm paper to my face, though.

It is expensive, but you only replace it every 15,000 pages or something like that.

Hmm.....

The printers are more expensive, but it seems toner is cheaper. I would think about it, except my printer was only like $120 and it's pretty much an all-in-one, minus the fax machine part.

Yes, but toner is cheaper, and doesn't go bad like ink.


Printer Ink is more expensive than human blood.

Well no ****, there's over 7 billion people on Earth, each containing about 5 liters of blood; that's 35 billion liters of blood. It isn't exactly rare.

It's still a precious item. You can't just take blood from people. They have to volunteer, and you can only take a certain amount per month.

A lot of people are like "lol nope".

That post was not meant to be serious, sugartits. I've donated 3 times since I've been able to, I know how precious blood is.

Someone does all that work for you, all you have to do is rob a hospital.

Went with an all in one HP for $70. Pretty nice I'd say.

EDIT: I think I found the Nation's April Fool's joke.

I've got an HP laserjet, its 5 years old, I've replaced the toner cartridge once since I bought it.

I have zero need for color.

$100 printer, + 1 $60 toner cartridge = 5+ years of printing (And I just recently changed the toner, so we could be talking 8+ years)
