My credo
Give me money.
Quirky basically means its unreliable but you know the secret to making it work... that's what effin quirky is! Like when dad would say go start my truck in the morning. I'd run out and pump the gas 3 times, wait 30 seconds, crank it for 1 second, pump the gas again then start it... that's quirky. Because the damn thing don't work otherwise. And to a person who just wants to jump in and drive, that's unreliable because they dont know how to do that and the damn thing wont start.

Intelligence beats reliability. But reliability isn't measured by intelligence.

Damn that's a good quote for my signature

I mean quirky as in you gotta know what to worry about and what not to worry about.

Things that arnt "normal" for other engines are fine with a 2.9, things like ticking lifters and exhaust burning oil off the manifolds.

I go out, hit the key, and it goes vroom vroom, just like any other vehicle.
