  2. So... had a buddy rip apart the turbo on my K26 today because I simply do not have the time with work lately. Exhaust manifold: Cracked in 4 places Turbo: Cooked alive and stopped spooling Result: Somehow has managed to basically melt the turbine wheel without grenading.

    Recession coming?

    You're not the only one. I watched my neighborhood which had no houses built for about 6 blocks, just empty lots, since I bought my house after 2008. Then this year, suddenly 30 new houses in my neighborhood. Like watching weeds grow. My neighbors nextdoor rent the house, and are paying more than double what I pay for my house. The new houses are even more. The median household income here has not hardly budged, and makes very little sense. Construction jobs soaring through the roof, but once we hit that plateau, then what? Poof.

    Recession coming?

    Yeah, it's tempting. It feels like a huge crunch is coming and it feels similar to the last time. I'm usually a bull but the market feels... weird to me. Then again I don't have the expertise of romandad and many others, i'm still learning (aren't we always?)

    I was more talking shares, but it's good to see real estate/rental advice on here since that's something i've never dove into.

    Recession coming?

    I might go ahead and wait for now and see if it pops up a hair more before I do that. There are some that I'm still down on but am not /too/ terribly concerned because they're high dividend paying stocks and they'll eventually make it all back. That said... I started in at 192 on my SPY and it hasn't done anything but go up up and up. Once that correction hits, you know it'll hop back. I'm really, really tempted. It'd be real nice to buy another lambo.

    Recession coming?

    Housing here in central oregon is insane. property is insane. cost of living is insane. it feels like 2007 here in central oregon again.

    Valid point, makes more sense they'll hold onto it for serious investors and become another huge stock like google.

    I wonder if they'll split again. It's way up. Given their previous stock split history I feel more like it's a question of, "When will AAPL split again someday?"

    Resurrecting Jalpa #359

    I have not. My machinist expects around 300hp. Then again, Derek E's Jalpa dyno'd in at like 180-190 to the wheels. Stock is 255. I'm uncertain if that's an engine dyno or at the wheels. Either way, regardless, it'll be better than stock and that's all I care about, with efi that starts up happily, runs happily and has zero issues that don't require me constantly fcuking with the bastard DCNFs. Sorry for the late response everyone. Work has been insanely busy, and even tonight I've gotta get back to it, but I wanted to share the progress of the airboxes, which are ready to print. At high quality, 100 microns, it's going to take roughly 14 to 18 hours for each piece. Should have it on the car by the end of the week if I time it right. Can't wait to see the first one on the car. Finally can have some airboxes to fight the heat of the engine bay!

    Resurrecting Jalpa #359

    Alright, finally working on the airboxes. My brain hurts enough for one night. Used Rhino to do a quick sketchup of what i want them to look like and am slowly working in google sketchup to get it where it needs to be. My brain hurts enough for one night so that's enough progress for tonight.
