Man, this thread is severly OT and it's starting to journey over to the realms of: Funniest phrases/questions you've heard about your Subie - NASIOC. Btw, there is 156 pages of OT, flaming, and god knows what else. Nasioc is helpful for parts but man it is rediculous when it comes to the shit that goes on those threads.

Sorry, I did not want to confuse him more than he already was.

^ this was OT. LOL

My friend thinks that a turbo car has multiple BOVs, he keeps referring to them as blow off valves. Such as, "I love that SRT-4 with the turbo and those blow off valves..." Because some SRT-4 wanted to race me in my Jetta a couple months ago and kept spooling his turbo and the BOV "Pshhhoo" next to me. I was just like, yeah right like i'm going to race you on this busy ass street....
What is up with SRT-4 Owners??? seriously, i always get reved at when im stopped at a red light, and yes street racing is pretty stupid. I had one guy in a Neon blow past me on the interstate, cut me off, and then i saw him at the T intersection on the offramp. and he yelled at me "Is that all that thing has got???". I just threw up my arms and shook my head and went about my business. Its kind of funny, coasting at 55mph on the interstate is considered racing. and once again, street racing is unsafe and stupid.

It was OT, but i figured if you were that interested in this subject. You should find some reading material. Haha. I'm holding back my urge to flame srt-4 owners here. Just know that. I don't street race, i just call it. "Passing people that are pissing me off." LOL Which is normally a one sided event.

I've had the normal silly/stupid questions. Such as: does that thing have a V6/V8? That's normally after they ask how much horsepower and I say 300 crank. That and people telling me to get a BOV/MBC and it'll help out greatly. I just tell them....no thanks I want my engine to last and not get grenaded through stupidity.

the other day i was cruising with some friends and 1 of their friends came along in my car, (i have the spt intake) so he heard the blow off sound and he got scared saying "O S#@$!!! your tire is leeking air, pull over" i just kinda smirked, downshifted and took off =]

OK ok, I was at a car show not too long ago and I wasnt even in the car show but I still had my hood up for my friends right. Well one of the judges..........a judge, came up to me and apparently thought the wrx was actually an svt because he asked how i turbo'd the suzuki engine. So i replied, no no no, it came turbo man and before I could even tell him it was a subaru he says, I dont know how you young kids can afford to have cars imported like that and walked away. I stood there in aww.

When I turn my car on............it returns the favor!

here are mine i drive an 04 sti
-some wannabe kid told me i had a nice legacy, i just laughed.
- another kid walked up to me and asked if i had front wheel drive, and i said no he shrugged and walked away.
on another note i think this is funny, it is not a bad thing but their is this mentally challenged kid that live down the street from me. every time i go by him i rev it and he shouts nice car.

One of my students was trying to compare my coworkers g35 to my 06 wrx. He found out the g has a v6 but the other kids were like ahh but Mr. E's car is hooked up he can take the g35, so the student was like ohh how many cylinders do you have? I replied with 4, so he goes to my coworker, yo he has a 4 cylinder!!!.......and it's hooked up!!!!

My coworker is always asking me to do a 4 wheel burnout. I always tell him I like my transmission in functioning order and decline.

Recent dumb questions:

1. Is that a stock color?
2. Is that AWD?
3. That thing got a turbo? Where's the intercooler?
4. How's the hole shot on it? (Asked by a kid in an M3 at a stop light)
5. What's done to that thing? (usually if they say "thing," I just say alot)


Had one guy look at the headlights and say "That's cute, it looks like a Neon." So I punched him in the face... Ok so not really, but I wanted to.

today a guy was looking down the hood scoop and told me i should never drive in the rain, why because it will go into the intake under the hood scoop. i died and told him it is an intercooler. he said o and went away.
