Wheel bolts.

Fucking, really...really...expensive exhaust shit...

Like a mandrel piece of 3" stainless steel, with a flange on one end and a v-band on the other end, and a hanger, should NOT be north of 300 bucks. 500-600 bucks with the cat of all cats in it. I don't give nine shits how many times it says APR on it. It still a piece of fucking pipe. It doesn't need to be cast either. It needs to be 304 stainless, v-band, hanger, flange that fits the stock cat back. Almost a thousand damn dollars for a fucking downpipe...OH OH OH...but you get stage 2 for "free"

>:|

Also you'd think a simple muffler delete for those who just want more noise would be easy to find. Fuck no it's not.

And I'm not cheap:



THIS manifold was a grand or a smidge more actually. What you can't see is the nice merge collector spike. Held my GT2871R on my Cobalt real nice.

Now how the eff can companies sell me a piece of pipe, that is only ONE piece of pipe, almost in the same realm for a downpipe!

Don't even get me started on the price of carbon fiber intakes...so...most people don't know that carbon fiber has a shelf life and deteriorates if exposed to UV light(aka the sun). Why would you want ANYTHING you plan on having for more than iono, 5 years, carbon fiber? I get that you can like the look, just don't act all surprised that your tube of Aramid fiber decided to come apart after the glue that basically holds it together started to fail because it's in all tempartures and probably subjected to getting fun shit like calcium chloride on it(what they use to pre-treat the roads with before it snows) and there's another 500 bucks gone.

I guess what I don't get, is, why can't companies offer the flashy shit and the "who fucking cares what it looks like, it's under my car, as long as it doesn't rattle and rust" shit too? It's a piece of pipe!

Also clutch chatter is not that loud. People should practice saying they want to keep their dual mass flywheels because it will keep you from pwning your FWD trans. Again, source:

Way too much torque, no-lift shifting(hey it was an advertised feature on the Cobalt SS), a 6 puck exedy hypersingle, and sticky tires:

+

+

=


And why the fuck can't you get a single mass flywheel that's like less than 15 lbs?

Are these like, tractor engines or something?

Now, tell us how you really feel?

If you google "(insert topic here) mk7 forum" it'll find anything.

The search function here is kinda shitty, but if you do an advanced search it's ok

50/50 on search of forum. it does tend to be overly specific if using standard search. As others say, adv. search, tapatalk search, or google search are helpful though.
