Do they give you shit for driving a boosted Honda?
Oh yeah...Its just joking back and forth. I give as much as I get though. Its mostly preference. There a few muscle cars guys who are absolutely anti import. I think a lot of it stems from them having a lot of pride on the line. Especially when your talking speed, if a honda loses its no big deal most are sub 2 liters. If a ls1 powered car loses its kinda sad...LOL not really but thats where the hostility comes from. I am on Utah Muscle Cars forum (I am going to build a boosted V8), and I can say 90% of the guys are very cool. There are bad apples on both sides though. Every time you come in contact with one those who are close minded its a chance to represent Hondas, and imports in general. Most of them expect a punk 22 year old. So when one acts like a grown @ss man it helps alter their perception.

There is a guy I work with that I've become pretty good friends with.  He used to have a 700hp boosted DSM then moved into a Camero which he has now boosted as well.  We talk alot of shit back and forth but he's the same way.  he has much respect to anyone that takes the time to build their car.  On the flip side we have another guy that works with us and is just an ass hat about the whole American vs Import.
