    I dont think it is a wind up...

    i've seen on forums..

    People who have painted there Discs..

    one guy drilled a hole in his rocker cover to put a NoS Pipe in...

    and someone fed sand through their air intake to Port and polish their Head

    If they have no clue about how to do this tstuff then they'll believe what they are told.. we see it as stupid as it's all common knowledge to us

    So....Sods law dictates bread will always land butter side down! A cat thrown out of a window will always land on it's feet. Take one cat, butter it's back and throw it out the window..What happens?!

    Ok. My buddy said I should flush my engine after I got it in top running condition (which is was in). I drained out all my oil and kept the little screw guy out of the bottom of the big metal tank and then poured in a couple gallons of boiling water to clean everything out, which flowed the water out. I put the screw back in, and I let it sit for a couple minutes, put in slick 50 and then started it for the 2 minutes that my buddy said to do and kept it at 5k rpms. My motor then starting making this really loud knocking noise, which followed with a loud bang, and the engine shut off. I'm afraid to try and restart it. What do you think it could be?
    Then this guy goes on trying to strip his engine out and fix it... another classic quote is:
