im doing a custom intercooler install at the moment and i ran out of hose clamps for the silicone joiners so i drove to pirtek to grab some and they were all out of the clamps in the size i needed so i thought i would take a drive to peps auto spares anyways when i got to the counter i told them what i wanted and while he was a the back grabbing me box's of hoses clamps there were these two guys in the store looking at his turbo that was in the glass cabinet it was just some cheap china spec turbo nothing special anyways these two guys asked how much for the turbo, what it was rated at, ball bearing? the bloke behind the counter said it was $650, rated at 500hp and was ball bearing then they asked more questions like can it fit on a skyline which made me think to myself what kinda question is that ? u make it fit!!!, then he tried to be technical they asked if it had ceramic wheels because he didnt want ceramic wheels because they shatter then he started asking if it was internal gated or external gated? if u cant look at a turbo and tell if its internal gated or externally gated your a freaking idiot that shouldnt even be talking about ceramic wheels
then they started asking about the china spec blow of valve sitting next to the turbo and it all started over again, can it fit on a skyline? WTF ??? which made me think to myself once again, u make it fit! if it comes with a flange just weld it onto your piping! if it doesnt come with a flange u freaking make one !!! by this time i had paid for my clamps and i didnt even wait for an invoice i walked out because i couldnt stand to hear any more of this technical talk
oh and one more thing who the f**k asks a sales rep at peps auto spares for technical advice????
hAHhAhaHAHHA may as well ask my girlfriend who knows nothing about car
i see and meet plenty of these types of people and ive always kept my mouth shut as its just not worth getting involved
anyways share your shit talker stories
ive got heaps more but ill share them later
( i also remember making a thread like this B4 but cant seem to find it now must of got lost during the upgrade )
