PS3 ftw. I like my $500 paperweight. No, it's not broken; I just don't use it.

Where do I start? New struts for the liftgate/window, fixed the driver door wiring harness, flushed heater core, replaced passenger side mirror, fixed power antennae, new spark plugs/wires, valve cover gasket, fixed the 12v accessory plug, replaced a taillight, replaced both fog lights, new clock spring.

On the map for tomorrow is new motor mounts and a new trans mount

Found out that 1/4 tank of gas really means it's bone dry.

So far it seems correlated to OCD and the need to look at one's poop."

Ya, if you hit the 1/4 mark you need to find gas pretty quick.

Nah, means you need a new sending unit. I let mine go down to E and then I've got about 10 miles of reserve.

Parked it for at least the weekend, my S4 is a little bit too much fun at 20PSI of boost hahaha.

What's stock boost on those? My cousin had an SRT-4 (I know it's a completely different car and nothing to really compare to an S4) that he got up to 24 PSI from a stock 15 PSI. That thing would eat C5 Vettes all day. "Dude, you just got beat by a Neon!"
