    so i went and hung out with an old friend tonight while they were at work.
    around 11:30 a guy walks in. hes dating another chick that works there.
    before they locked the doors they asked me if i was driving the honda, to make sure no customers were in there.
    i said yeah, its my pos.
    then they asked the guy if it was his lesabre(sp?) and he said yeah.
    i said but mine not that big of a piece of shit.
    so then the conversation went like this:
    h- stands for him, the other guy
    m- stands for me.

    h- mines not a pos

    m- its a buick, kinda is. mines an 88, so its pretty old therefore a pos. but nothing on the car is original, everythings swapped so it runs like a champ.

    h- yeah, i used to have one. mine had all the jdm stuff done to it.

    m- cool, mines got the jdm front, seats, and swapped motor. etc.

    h- yeah i had an eg. with a jdm motor out of a 2001 crx. race edition.

    m- ok? what motor was it?

    h- i dont know, i didnt put it in. i didnt do the motor work.

    m- and? how do you drive a swapped car and have it worked on, yet not know?

    h- i had a mechanic frend do it all for me. the motor was a z something.

    m- a zc?

    h- no, it was like a ze or something. it was rare. like i said it was the race edition, they only made 1000 of them ever. i dont know what it was but it dynoed at 195 to the wheels.

    m- out of a 2001 crx?

    h- yeah, it was quick. but hard to find parts for.

    m- so what parts did you have to replace?

    h- i had to replace the clutch. wouldnt go into third gear.

    m- replaced the clutch? what kinda clutch was it?

    h- i dunno, i told my mechanic friend i needed one, he asked me if i wanted a stage two. i said sure, i didnt really care.

    m- so what car was the cluch for? was it an integra or civic clutch?

    h- i dunno, i just had the mech find it. i also had to replace the radiator, which was a bitch bc the stock civic radiator wouldnt fit into place, so we had to find one to fit.





    thats all i care to post. wtf? a 2001 crx limited race edition ZE motor?

    I've talked to ricers like that. Before I bought my '93 fodo I nearly bought a '91 hatch and then the guy opens the hood for me and starts pointing shit out he's like "See that's the b18 Type R engine with the racing headers right there it makes about 220 hp". I laughed and said "Thanks" and walked away. It was a completely stock old beat up d15b7 and needed a lot more work to get it to run.

    That sounds more like a case of scamming then ricing.

    I've had that happen to me before. Not on a car I was buying but guys showing off their cars. I remember one kid had a boosted eclipse, pops the hood and starts pointing and running down numbers. The part that caught my attention was, "Stage 4 Turbo- $13k"
    Me-"$13k for a turbo kit"
    Him-"No, just the turbo"
    Me-"What do you run?"
    Him-"high 12s"
    Me-"Why is the exhaust housing red?"
    Him-"How many stupid questions are you going to ask?"
    Me-"Enough that you'll admit that that MIGHT be a T3(about that size but I didn't look to close) that you personally sprayed red because there is overspray on the compressor. And you have never seen high 12s, at least not in this car."
