    Sorry I should have made my statment more clear you are corret in what you are saying. What I was saying with my reply like you mentioned was he could be buring the electrode off the plugs because hydrogen combust and a much higher heat range then gas so that is why I mentioned colder plugs because in tuning boosted cars you running colder plugs to allow the fuel to be leaned out to make more HP thus reducing the some of the risk for detonation. This is why I run 2 step colder plugs in my subie :) leaner fuel mixture + methanol and lots of boost = win lol. ;D

    Cant wait see picture.

    I'm curious as to the temp it burns at,wouldn't it be much higher than a normal octane fuel?And if so,how are you avoiding burnt valves and pistons,warped heads?And can this car be switched back and fourth from gas and hydrogen and back to gas?What about the timeing advancement or retarding because of the different combustion properties,I would also think timing adjustment constantly would be difficult as the cars stock computer wouldn't have presets for hydrogen power.I'm still interested in seeing this myself.

    Then make it more stealthy. 8)

    Hack job worries me that it may be tuned poorly also. Might want a reputable tuner to take a look at it sooner rather than later.

    Someone bothered to steal your Rotas? (kidding, keep reading/looking)

    Little more lift and you can clear the curb with the front too. ;D

    So about my user name....

    Here's where it comes from.

    My other hobby:



    It's bone stock, I swear ;D



    I'm still pretty active in the local AWD scene around here (I actually moderate AZAWD.org), but this whole reefing hobby has started to become the focus of my "play" money. I haven't put any significant money in my car in over a year now.

    Nice rides guys.

    What you're saying now makes sense! I tune two stroke engines, so I run a colder plug in my motorcycles due to high performance tuning.

    What ever money I don't spend on corals I spend on expensive Bourbon and hard to find Cigars. You wouldn't believe how much money you can drink and smoke away.

    Heh, disprespect? respect is earned- not given, and BTW, we are all entitled to our opinions, weather you agree with them or not. My father had tat's he hated them- he was a Marine Corp's lifer, most people I know regret tat's they have for various reasons- in due time, and there is a certain mind frame of the people that get tat's both good intended and not so good intended.

    You feel your being judged- if so, why should you care? I do not think ill of people with tat's, I feel some what sorry for them- it's something you have to live with till you die, and lest I mention, skin is much more healty looking w/o tat's IMHO. We are all created perfectly- why mess with it? While I can't elaborate any further w/o breaking 3reef rules- you should know what I speak of.

    I noticed you made no comment of guns, I own many of them, I think hand guns should be outlawed, as well as any type of weapon that starts life as an automatic, except perhaps, shot guns. To many crazy people in the world now a days.
