there i was today on the M5 in the trusty transit overtaking 2 trucks dueling for an inch of tarmac.:drivin:
When captain scooby is up my rear flashing etc, so i get past the trucks as fast as possible to let him pass........hang on whats that noise?:sly: "rattle rattle"

captain scooby pulls straight in front of me and my windscreen starts filling up with fly splats.......wait a second thats OIL!!!

oh dear he's blown something......something bad
he's now in the slow lane smoking like hurricane higgins being over taken by me laughing my head off:grinno:

i thought that could've been me and felt guilty for a sec :uhoh: then carried on laughing.:p

Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever. I know we're on a skyline forum, but name a car which is perfect in every way when modified (let's not mention hicas, synchro, need for extra sump'age, ceramic turbo blades etc. lol).

All my scooby mates had no more than just the usual induction kit, exhaust and only 1 had a slight boost increase. funny as well as they were all different models 1 a WRX import second STI import and the real big problem one a STI Type RA.
