    W...t...f...?!

    W...T...F...?! That is the title of this article in the latest issue of import tuner. April 2008 issue. (my roomate get them and he showed me this article)

    This is exactly what the article says:


    Hey guys, I've got a '98 Audi 1.8T that I wanted to get more performance from and was recommended to port and polish the intake and exhaust. I did a little research and found out abrasive material is used to do it a lot of times-like gritty sand. So I got with my friend who tunes Hondas and we decided to try it ourselves. We got a bag of sandblasting sand and hooked it up to the intake of the car and started it up. We wanted to let the engine suck in the sand through the intake so it would port it out and then push it out of the exhaust so it would port the exhaust manifold. I was worried that it might cause problems but my friend told me it would be okay as long as we didnt make boost and it get sucked in the turbo. After letting the car suck about half the badg of sand, the check engine light came on and the engine started bucking and kicking and sounding really weird. We stopped and hooked the car back up normal and took off the sand dupply. We tried to start it again and it was really hard. Once it started it wouldnt idle and kept making weird noises. We took it out and drove it and it started to make scraping and knocking noises. Help! Can anyone tell me what to do! My buddy only does Hondas so he doesnt know much about Audis.


    The magazine replied:

    Wow. We're not even going to touch this one...

    Orion, i beg to differ. remember the lady who sued McD's because she spilled hot coffee in her lap even though she KNEW it was hot. that notched a couple stupidity lines in the pole that is society...

    i believe anything is possible due to the dumbing down of society...

    They thought they were porting out the intake and exhaust, instead of pouring sand in thier bearings. lol.
