    Bet he doesn't have a girlfriend anymore. Turbo is cheaper in the long run and won't mind if you listen to another turbo whining.

    You can fix a turbo. Try fixing a woman.

    Pearls of wisdom? Itís best to have her fixed right after baby delivery? (The only way you fix them. Weíre not fixable either ask any woman who has married a man with those ideas) A failed turbo is an opportunity to upgrade? You can trade in a 40 YO for two 20 YOs if you are into going fast? Speed costs how fast do you want to spend?

    Actually, he is married with two kids. He and I went to high school and college together.

    Like a wise old man who has been married for years, he, like me, has refrained from showing this to our wives. We find it funny and it's only a "joke" but not all jokes are for all eyes. Anyway, I'm sure my wife would find a description of an old hard to shift 5-speed manual transmission being the perfect descriptor for me. I'm quickly advancing to "grandpa" stage of life.

    Hi: phprof... I wouldn't mind having "Twin turbos" but I don't have the compression ratio for them!!!
