Today after work I stopped by the body shop to pick up my car. I got a new front bumper, the fender fixed, and both are coated in brand new paint. Now I'm only $1k down, ha. BUT.. It looks really really good. I am so happy with it.
So I was driving home from the shop, I went around a corner, punched the gas, the turbo kicked in, and the tires broke loose to the max. It felt good, I missed it. Then I heard a *CLUNK*, my car about died, and I couldn't go above 25 mph. (Queue my dirty drawers.) I started to pull over, but I was less than a mile from home and the car still ran. So I drove home and walked straight into the house. I did NOT want to see what blew up. Finally I got the balls and opened it up. The upper intercooler pipe had just gotten blown out of the intake manifold, haha. Which will take me 5 minutes to fix.
I love my car. It's just as moody as my girlfriend.
I think your car is less moody than Kari. Also I don't think your car is nearly as fast as my motorcycle and requires alot more maintenence. I think you should look into getting a ride just like mine because it's awesome and runs on alcohol only.
Damn you found the problem. i wanted to try to sound smart and tell you what it probably was before you looked..Tighten those clamps down punk!
actually the problem was that something messed with my boost level. i dont know if they played with my mbc or what. but for some reason my turbo was hitting 20+ psi... so that easily popped the uicp out.
