I'm too scared of driving that fast, these days. I've had too many close calls with cops (I've gotten lucky a number of times).

This Civic sounds mean as hell



What's up with the wine? It sounds like a supercharger. Is it the turbo spooling up?

I thought the BOV lets off the pressure once the turbo spools down, but you can hear it spooling up when he is accelerating.

I'm thinking that he might just have a massive turbo under the hood lol, hence the noticeable spool.

In the YouTube comments the owner says its a 3076r, so a pretty normal sized turbo for a 4cyl. Might have a anti surge compressor housing that makes spool louder.

blow-off valve release pressure from the turbo spooling once the throttle bodies are closed and that excess air has nowhere to go.... the sound you're hearing when he let's off the gas.

as for the sound upon acceleration... it's more than likely the sound of the turbo spooling. but at the higher RPMs it's probably mixing with the sound of an external wastegate of some kind. that is open to atmosphere vs being rerouted back into the turbo.

Depending on how many of you guys are going to the LT meet, we should get some KBBQ afterward since it's (sort of, kind of, but not really lol) in the same area.

lol wow. Mayweather is such a little bitch.

Mayweather Finally Admits Cowardice: Health Concerns Are Why He Ducked Pacquiao


Quote:
Now the truth has finally been confirmed by Floyd Mayweather himself: He’s afraid of getting pounded on like a punching bag by Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather admitted this to Bob Costas in an NBC show interview about why he doesn’t want to fight Pacquiao. “I am in the game to win, not just inside the ring, but outside the ring,” stated Mayweather. “My health is more important than anything.”
Costas then countered with, “Are you implying there is something to fear in Manny Pacquiao?”
Floyd: “I don’t fear no one. If you’re insinuating that I’m a scared fighter, why would you want to watch a scared fighter?”
Earlier in the interview, Mayweather mentioned Muhammad Ali’s health. “With or without Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather is okay. Floyd Mayweather fights for Floyd Mayweather. At the end of the day, Floyd Mayweather has to be happy and comfortable…Look at the Ali situation. Fans pushed him to get into fights at the end of his career that he didn’t want to get in…If Ali could trade it all in for his health, he would.”
(Note: Let me correct Floyd. Ali was not forced by fans to get in the ring with Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Larry Holmes or Trevor Berbick. Money, pride and a fearless belief in his skills were the motivation for Ali to take those fights.)
Floyd also said: “One shot can end your whole career. Boxing is a very deadly sport.”

Good point. There will probably be free food.

The meet I went to last year had burgers, hot dogs, spring rolls, lumpia, etc...
