Personally, you have to be an idiot to pay $100 for a Mugen oil cap. A $100 oil cap does nothing as for the speed of the car and I am guessing that the regular Honda OEM cap works just fine.

I use to watch the show to see how bad were the cars and he was funny making fun of the cars. To me, the worst car on the show was the Frankenstein Escort. It was two Escorts tack welded together (front half to back half). The shop wouldn't touch the car cause it was too unsafe. Never liked what they did to the cars.

Heh, chrome wheels on an acura are horrendous. Chrome wheels in general are horrendous imo.

The blue one is not too bad but the bodykit just makes it ehhh.

I will be glad when those stupid looking tin can exhausts go away just like I was happy when the wheels that stuck out 10 inches from the wheel well went away.

psst...tuning is about performance, not looks, as in tuning the engine or suspension, for example. Adopting "tuning" as the term to describe adding layers of body kits and huge fartcans is exactly the attitude that non-ricers despise about ricers.

While I am not a ricer (too old for that) the new Mustangs GT, and Boss have changed my mind completely about what I had already planned and spent on my 95 GT Mustang. I was never a fan of factory hot rods but what those little 5.0 Cammers can do is amazing.

Garage sale coming soon
Engines, transmissions, tools. I'M done working on em just wanna drive em.

Then again, perhaps now that gas is thru the darn roof, those kids that would have blown away their money earned working at whatever minimum wage paying job, on whatever tasteless mods they could come up with on their car, are now having to put all that money....into their gas tanks.
