Ride: AU III XR8 Pursuit 250 ute

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

On Thursday night had the Fuzion tech night (woopdy f**k doo), were some Rep tells us how good there product is and that we should all sell it for them.
Anyways he was telling us that there amps are really reliable and the majority that are returned to them end up being user error not being installed properly.
They had this one case however, were this bloke had installed the amp, but it would not work, kept complaining and what not. They told him to bring the car in and they'd take a look. Brings the car in, they check the positive power wire, no worries, check the earth cable. He's earthed it to the boot. But with a bit of a difference, took it a bit literally and built a box, filled it with dirt and put the cable in... The rep actually had photos.

I've heard that story before. I've also heard one about a guy who dropped his 180SX into the shop to get some go faster bits for it. When he got it back it was unbelievably slow and when they put it on the dyno it put out way less power then the standard car. The problem turned out to be someone had plugged the intercooler with rags to keep it clean.
