So I was talking to my cousin in law... He does custom fab work. Wants to turbo the 318. I said I'd donate the car but no more. He has turbo and stuff from his eclipse he wrecked. He wants to do it just for beer lol. So should I buy him a few cases and let him? I figure only a few lbs of boost would be all she could handle. I'm curious about it.

Replacing this hopefully wont be crap tastic. If your blower motor stops working the problem is your final stage resistor. This is Much cheaper than replacing a blower motor.

FSR on the e46 is easy if you're a contortionist and can easily replace screws you can't see.

Other than that.

I've been looking into buying a remote control car. Nothing crazy maybe up to 300 bucks, but probably more like 200.

Was thinking about an Remote Control autoX or something like that.

i bought myself a $300 r/c truck when I was like 12 or so, it was awesome except for the battery draining after 10 minutes
