    I can 100% state that MR. Walker is an unpleasant and unappealing human being. Taking into consideration the State he is from, I will refrain to elaborate. I do not need a lawsuit.

    I just called the "Wizard". I had a great conversation with David Long and suggested he contact Danial at Ricombi for some help with the oil leak on Tyler's 348.

    David is a really sharp dude and a genuinely nice guy. I invited him to join in the discussion and offered any assistance we can give him on the 348.

    I hope they do some kind of video with the jig. If not, I'll probably make one when I do my major after the new year. My '90 has the cam seal leak pretty bad so I'm looking forward to getting it corrected.

    One of the things I mentioned to David is that I like seeing work being done a lot more than work that has been done discussed.

    I hope he contacts Danial and jumps in the discussion. It was really a pleasure talking to him. He is a very sharp guy, IMHO.

    Never understood why no one says to put a thin layer of hondabond around the housing orings where the leak originates from typically. All the posts I have seen says install the orings dry. Seems a little sealer could not hurt but may help a lot.

    At the 15:15 mark pay attention to what Ferrari Magnus is eyeballing. ;)

    Off course.... Knew that was going to happen the minute he got it.
    355 360 etc are "better" cars but they are not better.

    It's a disgrace what he did with putting in the new ugly seats.

    I can't stand him anyway, he is way too complicated and slow when he talks, come to the point dude.

    He did not put the seats in they were there he just recovered them if I recall. Lets be honest the stock 348 seats are horrid comfort wise. While I would not put those in there are actually options that look exactly like 348 seats that are modern with actual support. All those type "racing seats" looks way too bulky in these cars.

    I think it's great what he's doing with this car, hope it's a long term keeper. He seems to be finding as I am, it's actually the most rewarding and reliable 'performance' car I've owned.

    I can actually enjoy some of his videos now. I find his approach kind of funny.

    Glad he favors his 348. I like them in black also. Not a fan of his seats...

    He finally comes around and gives props to the 348. Only good news for the Brotherhood. I can almost forgive him for the seats - almost. They are replacements and are hideous. He would have been better off swapping in some Corbeaus in a neutral tone. His total investment in the car is over $40K. Don't forget he gets labor at David's shop at a discount rate; I think it's $75/hour. I keep writing him to get rid of those terrible and dangerous OEM 17's and replace them with 355 or 360 wheels.

    Buying Capristo and then still use those Hawaii colored seats, he is a strange guy no doubt...

    I ve watched a few of his videos. Didn't he openly admit at one point that he's buying all of those cars on credit? LOL
