Ok, so how many of you have ever sat down and watched an installment of Hi-Rev tuners?!?!? OMG, I get a good laugh everytime I watch it!!! Why? Because it is the perfect embodyment of what ricers are all about. Never once do they mention the engin mods, other than an intake and exhaust, spark plug wires, and maybe they'll mention a turbo/supercharger and the bottle!!!! They focus most of their time talking about the "racer look" of the car with it's custom body kit and "big" 17's. Also, and this is the best part, the host's of the show don't have a damn clue what they are talking about, they just read what's put in front of them!!!! Again, the show is a great laugh on a Sunday night. Here's the web-site, I've not looked at it, but for those that don't have Speed TV, I'm sure this will work.Hi-RICE

OMG, they did the funniest thing on there last night. They spoke to a guy from Quakerstate about how often you should change the oil and what type of oil to use for your MUSCLE CAR!?!?!?!?!?! They started showing all these 69 Camaro's and Chevelle's and stuff. I was like "how dare you shame muscle cars in this fashion my putting them on your show!!!!" But yeah, I just wanted to see how many of you guys had seen it.

I've seen it a couple of times. Your right about the host not knowing what they are talking about. I just hope there's never a VW featured on that show!!!

Heh, it's not like I make my schedule around the show, but I watch it sometimes for about 10 mins just to see how sad those people really are.

I hate to be an ass but with these new Honda V-Tecs, especially J-Spec motors, you can't do too much except port and polish, get headers and exhaust. My brother has a 1995 Civic Coupe with a B16A DOHC v-tec, which is from Japan, DC headers, Greddy exhaust, and all the little goodies and he does high 12's. All he has to do is port and polish the heads to get a little more.

I'm sorry, but I've owned cars with headers and exhaust and I've seen other cars with headers and exhaust and they don't run high 12's. So unless the "little goodies" you speak of consist of forced induction of some kind and/or a little bottle in the trunk, then I'm not too sure of hight 12's.
