    Also, can I be CTO of IPTN (I figure that would be a cushy job )

    Well we'll fetch you a side car. Seeing as you seem interested in technological stuff, maybe you could build us some engine mods so we can evade those darn cops faster.

    Oh yeah, you can be the CTO of IPTN! We could do with someone taking care of the techies. They seem to be downloading I don't know what all day and stealing all our bandwidth - some weird files with 95D or 90D names along with "X". Wonder what that could be???

    I know nothing about motorcycles or automobile engines, but here are some suggested mods:
    Low restriction air filter
    Headers/Drag pipes/Low restriction mufflers
    High Lift Camshafts
    Supercharger + Turbocharger + Intercooler + Nitrous Kit
    High Efficency High Output Ignition

    As for the files, I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Oh. Yeah. I guess it is about time to get rid of the super long sig.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Ok, no butt kissing. Is this better attitude:
    That's a cool friend. Maybe I should try to teach that to our bullmastiff...?

    I have a bike even if it's not a motor one:

    Why would anyone want to fit nitrous to a bike? :eek:

    That'd be like fitting a rocket to a skateboard!!

    Anyhow personally I like the purepower under my right foot. Turbo and superchargers are okay but they'd have to be the low end torque variants. It's irritating to put your foot down and get nothing but lag.

    Of course if you just shave off a hundred kilos or so you often get the same more powerful oomph and it corners too unlike half the nitrous cars That reminds me of the T1 that Clarkeson drove. Twice the bhp/ton (is it ton or tonne for this?) of a Bugatti Veyron weighs about as much as a pack of fags and yet can't corner. How dumb is that!

    Give me an Exige and I'll be happy. Stuff the 600 litre straight twelve with it's two ton curb weight. I want to go fast but I'd also like to be able to pick the direction once in a while.... mind you the AC Cobra is also a fav. Possibly the only car known to be a killer on any road, in any conditions regardless if your going straight or around a corner. Shame they never produced the scion of that car. Now that had grunt!
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Hey Mav, I want to join.

    Here are my credentials: I'm ISFJ, thus making me an outcast on this forum. I like typology, the Internet and MBTI, thus making me a deviant SJ. I cheated on a Algebra test (a friend and I solved each other's matrices), stole kiwis from the Edible Schoolyard, and evaded jury duty, making me a misfit among the law-abiding Guardians. Also, I enjoy open discussions and wisecracking. So sign me up.

    Here's my bike:
