    Hah, I made one of those a few days ago, posted photos in my MR1. It's funny how a $15 DIY power supply outperforms my old $80 commercially available one.

    VERY TRUE~~~!!!! and it cost me next to nothing only thing i had to buy were the alligator clips and a switch(which i will solder in eventually) and having the availability of multiple voltage and Amp sources is really nice.

    MORE HISTORY!!!

    One of my favorite sets of pictures of my baby.... these actually really old but still relevant. Near and old abandoned house built by one random guy on another persons land but never torn down. Odd thing. She didn't have any mods in this picture hadn't even really been thinking about mods just driving her around these back roads with a friend alot at the time.

    sadly they have all been different engines... Instead of replacing the HG(which I had Agile do on a motor that threw a rod bearing 5 days later and another motor that just decided oil+radiator = fun after 3 months(evergreen headgaskets) I've just gotten low mileage jdm motors... I'm hoping this time to mill the heads and do head gasket job myself and call it a day till next year.... the heater core because car has almost 200k... and rather do it now than wait for it to go bad and freeze.... I've just got terrible luck lol

    There is no such thing, unless you are @Yamazaki.. Heh.

    Most of the "under 70,000km" JDM engines sold in the US have many many many more miles on them than that.. The importers don't have a problem with outright lying about miles, and it has been well documented that they don't care.
