A few weeks ago I was sitting outside my highschool at lunch with some people and this black 3000gt SL drives by with a new spoiler on it. One of the girls turns to me and says "That car could kick your car's ass." Uggh.... I have to explain, "It's the same damn car!! Just a new spoiler, and that doesn't make it faster." Then the other day I was in the library looking up the cheapest place for the K&N and came across a site that said you could expect gains of as much as 25hp. I started laughing and one of the girls asked what I was laughing about, so I told her and she started going off like she knew all kinds of stuff and I was just letting her go on. Then she says, like she's informing me of something, "Did you know that they make tires that give you more horse power?" I almost bit my bottom lip off trying to contain myself.

Gains of 25HP or better are not unheard of with the FIPK... but not just an element.

lol...yeah that's pretty much what i get from the girls i know. one girl always tells me about her boyfriend's awesome cars and how fast they are... he has an 88' TransAm w/ a TPI350 with fuckin' truck rims on it, and an 85' mustang 5.0...don't even get me into this kid, he's a real punk. anyways, she'll go on and on about his bad-ass cars then she'll talk about the cars that she's "gonna have" when she gets older. she's always like "real sports cars have to be AT LEAST like V12's" and all that, then she tells me she wants "a ferrari, a porsche 911, a viper, and a lotus esprit." and i'm like, what happened to all the V12's?

yea, girls are goofy but then again so are just as many guys.
I hate it when girls are like look that car is so fast. I'm like its a 6cyl Mustang, automatic with flowmasters. It's not fast.

Ughhh.. girls that ignorant should be kept away from cars! I prefer the girls that are honest about not knowing about cars and don't pretent to know, or the girls who do actually know what they are talking about and only speak facts. All those other girls need to get back into their Escorts and Civics and drive back over to their riceboy boyfriends to put another sticker on the car.

i have one female friend who actually knows about cars a little bit. she has personal experience with my friend's (her boyfriend's) '94 yellow mustang GT 5.0 with a bit done to it. she is really cool because she went to a mopar show with us and actually appreciated the cars!!!! she knew what was up when we said "hemi" :) but she wants to get the same car as her boyfriend had or an old fastback stang with a 289 hi-po and build it up. i wish i could find a girl just like her.........

Just becuz you date dumb bimbos does not mean women don't know anything about cars! Perhaps you should try dating someone with a brain.

LOL, I'm not dating either one of them. Not worth the investment, I think they have a fried ECU:D

Yeah, I would love to find a girl like that. I did meet a girl who's dad was rebuilding a 69 ss Camaro though. When I looked at it he said he was ashamed to show it to anyone because of how dirty it was at the time. I tried to talk him into letting me take it to the car wash for him but he didn't go for that.

While this may be true. The women they are talking about here got that info from the K&N commercial not through any technical knowledge.

I never thought about it this way but I guess if your engine is modded out with huge turbos and stuff I guess adding a after market intake last could increase your HP 25 or so it would seem.

For the VR-4s the K&N FIPK does add around 20 hp due to the turbos. Unfortunately for us NAs it adds somewhere between 7 and 10 hp. :cool:

It's so hard to find females that really know about cars , or at least have some level of appreciation for them......and who act true about their knowledge of automobiles. Not to say they don't exist , I'm sure there are a lot of them but they're just hard to find. (Then again this applies to quite a large group of males too) Oh and by the way , Ryououki , stickers do add horsepower. I put a Type R sticker on mine and got an additional 30hp out of it throughout the entire RPM range. :D :D :D :D :D

I definitely agree about the woman thing... no question about it.
-- I know about cars because my boyfriend back home let me help him soup up his Iroc.
Can you believe the shit like that??? Anyways, there are some vehicles that even without mods add really impressive HP numbers with a FIPK, namely big block pickup trucks. Its so stupid how much the factorys pull those poor motors down with their restrictive exhausts and intakes.
I like girls like my sister (don't get any stupid ideas). She will drive anything you throw at her, and if its fast she'll tell people its fast and kick their ass with it (her last car was a Supra). If they ask why, she says "ask my husband". The way it should be unless they truly do know.
