This is something that I actually heard...

 

If you take off the entire control system from a Toyota Celica GT-Four and put it on a rotary engine, you can make 200 hp.

 

 

I also heard that stock SBCs can make 300 hp simply by changing the rocker arms to ones with a higher ratio.

 

 

Oh, yea, this too:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stage-13-Performance-Power-Tuner-Chip-Add-150-HP-8-MPG-OBD-Tuning-for-Ford-/152533241128?hash=item2383b08d28:g:RFsAAOSwB-1Y6mfS&vxp=mtr

Here is stuff I can use to plug into the cigarette lighter, dump pellets into the gas tank, and of course magnets: http://www.caranddriver.com/features/fuel-saving-devices-debunked-dynamic-ionizer-fuel-doctor-fd-47-hot-inazma-eco-moletech-fuel-saver-fuel-boss-magnetic-fuel-saver-gearbox

 

Man, I am going to beat all of you guys now when I get all of this crap plugged in, turned on, and activated.  I wonder if I can magnetize my entire car???  Is that what a chick magnet is?

No.  Of this, I am sure.

 

Unless you get the tornado air intake device.

Our own former feerless leader told me he had it on good authority that a stock 100hp honda engine would go 160 with a simple ECU update  :huh:....  Thusly explaining a lot things back then .

 

I heard the same thing in person.

I had that monkey work on my car for 2 hours, he billed me for 6 and it still runs lean.  Not trustworthy.  I gave him a sh!tty review on YELP.

So on goofy marketing stuff... I had to get new front brake pads for the wife's Matrix so I went to Napa.

 

Them: We have Ultra Premium, Adaptive, then Premium which is OE equivalent. 

Me: What is Adaptive?

Them: Well, it has different compounds on the inside and outside pads.  The inner pad sees more heat because of the engine and the outer pad runs cooler.

Me: Really?  I will take the Premium, OE equivalent is fine for street driving.

I think it was $129 for the ultra, $113 for the adaptive, $103 for the Premium that was OE equivalent.  They charge more for pads I have to make myself?   

 

His story was different compounds inner and outer.

The teenage son of a friend of mine heard "you need to get more air into the engine".  So he drilled a bunch of holes in the air plenum.  Of course this was downstream of the air cleaner and the MAF.  :blink:

 

Thankfully it was a POS car before the performance enhancement.....

I bet that smoothed out the idle.

well 1st you start with one of these... electronic supercharger then you add one of these to the exhaust turbo exhaust tip then you ae all set to DOMINATE

 

If you have dual exhaust you can add TWO turbo tips and go even faster.  Since a 4 cylinder only has one exhaust and can only install one, these should probably be a points adder.   :lol:

yes indeed... but I bet if you were GENIUS enough you could hide them inside the exhaust and nobody would know :ph34r:
