    I hope this thing does not come to MOTD again this year. He was so annoying driving around Fontana all day and night at 70 mph.

    Any ghetto exhaust on ricerboys Honda, Nissan, Toyota or VW rabbits.

    You have seen the big fart can mufflers that drown all the time. They tend to have crappy tinted windows, a "Stance" look with stupid wheels poked out all off camber and a huge subwoofers that boom from two blocks away. When you finally see the car it look like crap with 12K purple HID lights and sounds like it is vibrating apart from all the bass.

    :lol: Oh and a gold crown on the dash that smells of some nasty cheap cologne.

    Avoid them as most have no insurance.

    He's like 19 or 20, I know I was like that in my VW Bug back then. Can't begrudge a kid for coming from money either.

    Coming from money - kudos to his folks for being able to be well off. However he is a douchebag, his driving @ MOTD and his pompous, self important, holier than thou attitude makes him a certified stone douchebag.

    Nathan - the kid acts like a douchebag off line and online. Nothing wrong with telling it like it is if it walks like a duck!

    Here's the latest from his FB page:

    Here's a little Kowalski 2.0 update... We are going to do a full motor build in the states and have it shipped up here to Canada. Should have the motor in about a month and a half. Here's what the build will be:

    o De-bur Lap, port faces and upper cap and gasket area
    o De-flashed inside out
    o Modify oil returns
    o 200cfm Competition port and polish intake and exhaust
    o Gasket match or any intake/exhaust design fully port
    o Radius exhaust seats
    o De-shroud combustion chamber polish
    o CC Chamber and match all four volumes
    o Competition high flow multi angle valve job with preparatory angles o Port Faces Lapped Flat (Studs removed and reinstalled)
    o Detailed Matched Intake Manifold Fully Ported to Head
    o Back cut intake valves
    o Hand lap valves
    o Set up proper seat pressure and clearances
    o Blue print with documentation
    JMTC Forged street and race pistons
    Piston quench area mods
    JMTC Forged rods
    ARP head studs
    Polished Crank
    Ceramic coated Supertech valves (.5mm and 1mm larger)

    Red top stronger coil packs
    Ported exhaust manifold
    Full 3" catless exhaust
    Coolant heater
    Oil cooler with thermostat

    Kyle Conner
    Andrew we talked about going to a standalone or another system but Manic and JMTC both assure me that it'll be smooth and able to handle all of this.

    I'm taking the following in the pool...

    Engine Damaged - not yet fatal - Friday at MOTD.

    Fatal - June 14th 2015.

    Good thing we have someone with deep pockets behind them and no qualms in spending for experimental stuff to keep us informed of what still doesn't work.

    Oooo... I want to see him sitting in approximately 4.5 quarts of oil on the side of the Dragon!

    I vote he blows it up again the second day of MOTD. :)

    I may not always agree but I do this time. I just don't want to spend yet another year at MOTD listening to that thing do laps around Fontana in search of a friend.

    Stop the insanity. Stop.

    Oh, and that yellow line. That's sacred. Some people can manage it and some people can't. And if you can't, don't brag about prowess. There's always someone bigger, meaner, faster, and stronger. Play in your own lane.

    Just go out there, have a good time, do no harm, and be happy.
