Letting you all in on the deal

Since these are so hard to find and so expensive, I figured I'd let you guys know about this auction

Damn..

I've heard of Cat bearings once, but didn't think anyone actually could afford those.

Are they hard to install?

Yeah they are... have you ever tried to stick your hand up a 2.25 inch pipe? It's not easy to possition those damn little things! And if you dont possition them right, theu'll just rattle your exhaust instead of rolling it! It took me 6 hours just to install these little things... but damn... the Gains were incredible!!!

You're kidding righ? :


What year is your car? You're supposed to replace the bearings every 30k or something like that.

Go to the dealership.. They're like $20 each and take forever to get in.

Not these bearings I got! They're teflon coated, thats right, the same stuff they make armor piercing bullets with! I never have to replace them! Muahahahahaha!! The dealer said they couldnt install them because the O/D of my Exhaust pipe would bulge... Man, did I show them!!!

Nope... I have HID Rechargable Fluid in my lights! Whenever I turn my lights on, it recharges the fluid level to the appropriate level. Yet another thing I had to pay dearly for, but still it's worth it!

you know you should also change the air in your tires after every oil change too. its the cool thing to do. it will save you 4 pounds, and give you better traction for the holeshot.

I'm going to save up for the sandblasting sand, and PnP my upper/lower intakes, heads, block, exhaust all at once.

Just start revving the engine and slowly feed the sand into the intake.

Make sure to place some bends in the pathway for the sand, Ken.

If the airway is too straight, then it just goes right thru with minimal port on only the pistons (cause they're moving up and down, colliding with some of the sand)

But if you bend the pathway early, the sand hits the tube walls and then proceeds to bounce around, sort of like total internal reflection on a fiber liine.

oh! and don't forget to get different grades of sand, the coarsest, coarser, finer, finest.


Don't want to leave the job half done.

I couldn't afford real sand, so today I drove around and found some different types of sand. Hit the jackpot at the elementary school.. I didn't think they still had sandboxes, but they do!

So, I've got to go through the different buckets and make sure there aren't any large rocks or shells in it.. I don't want to be some moron who sticks something into the engine causing it to seize or something.

"On Feb-07-04 at 09:21:51 PST, seller added the following information:
Attention this auction is for entertainment purposes only. If you do win this auction I do not intend to receive any money from the winner unless of course you would like an axle bearing. I was forced to revise this because some *** hole threw a fit 1 out 86 people who e-mailed me in three days threatened to take this to the police. What a prick. "
