    Just watched Redline TV... haha. First they said at one point(after puting a catback, hot air intake, and nitrous on a LS Cobalt) that they now had enough torque to pull down redwoods... all 260 some ft-lbs...

    Then they showed some SEMA event with NOPI where they gave two teams them two 04 EVOs with a ton of aftermarket stuff to see what the teams could do with them. One of the guys on one of the teams was complaining about removing the transmission "you need so many speciality tools just to work on this thing".... Ok I've assisted in removing more than one EVO transmission... it takes a large screwdriver, a pry bar, a 17mm socket, a either 27 or 32mm socket(forget off hand), a 10mm, a 12mm, a 14mm and some wrenches of the same size as well as air tools and ratchets to drive the sockets... Umm thats it....

    stoopid asses, my step son told me there were two kinds of people in the world, the kind that catch on to how to work on cars and the kind that catch all the sports...I told him he needed to go catch the bus...
