Nah, playing blackjack for a living is posing. Well, at least saying so in your signature is.

Hey j959,

how's your 993, I mean GT2, no, I think it was 944, or was it 996, with turbo, oops, with blower, no, with blower & turbo project going?

Got any disposable camera pictures yet?

Perhaps "blackjack" is an Australian term for being a 14 year old who lives at home and rides a skateboard ...

well this thread wasn't worth looking at....

I think calling any Porsche a poser's car is very ignorant...

Where the hell do you get this crap about a 996 being a poser's car?!?!?

Go buy a Honda.

you this always seems to happen....and only with 2 or three different people...they blow things out of proportion, take things too seriously and then make personal attacks....

im actually 19, i do actually play blackjack as a living, and was never serious about any 944 engine (which you all seem to think i was)

i was interested in using a 930 engine on a 911, with 993 suspension, and instead of getting the turbo to spool up quicker, put a blower on instead....this is not as crazy as it seems...i would not be the first person to think of this, many others have, even HKS, its just that its a complicated setup...

(think a 930 with normal top end, but no lag...would be very streetable and eliminate the edge NA and v8 cars have over a turbo car

as far as the people who are always hassling me, its always the same people, ive got nothing to prove, go p!ss of someone else
