Generic vs. Samco probably won't make much of a difference until like 2 or 3 years go by. Just from looking around, the selection of sizes is starting to become a bigger and bigger plus for Samco. The only way to get around buying these fancy pre-made parts is going to be paying about half the price, but a lot more effort on fabricating aluminum hoses and such.

But Samco is top notch, hence the price. Frequently you can see their parts in the top levels of professional motorsports.

Le sigh... I'm thinking I'm going to try asking the dealership for the aluminum heater core pipes, and then looking into having them anodized or something. The extra work doing something custom and cost of using special wire-reinforced hoses that won't kink with tight bends is just so expensive. Also this will mean not using the special fittings I designed and machined for my heater core.

Rear bumper. It turned about to be the opposite of the front. Diffuser was sealed in place with paint, and the edges of the bumper were screwed in with some sheet metal screws to the fender.

Drugs, what drugs? These drugs? These are not my drugs man.

Only drug I rarely do is legal in this state (sometimes). Other brain drains are unrelenting career and three children under 10yo plus their mom the overlord.

You just wait until you breed and see what it does to your psyche. I used to be perfectly laidback, children have made me psychotic.

But thanks!

Did you woo her with the promise of moving into your sumptuous abode of parents, peons, pot smoke and automotive malaise?
