My Bumper's Fixed and My Drawers are Dirty posted

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.

  • 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.
