what the f**k?! spent a lot of cash on over-all paint restoration and some extra mods and sh*t! what else is missing?!


sounds like its your idle bearing :P


when exactly is it when you hear "chug chug" and what exactly does that sound mean like a metal contact sound or does it happen when you step on the gas or break or idle or what when exactly does this happen because with what you have said it doesnt make any sense and also what exactly have you modified because it could very well be something to be with that because without proper tuning your car will s**t the bed
