    what are you guys giving this holiday season? many times when i'm out and about i see something that i just know will be the perfect gift for someone i know. 10 months out of the year anyway... when christmas comes i feel like i'm either shopping for someone who has one of everything, or someone who really doesn't have very much and i don't know where to start....ugh.

    in past years i have found items that make really good gifts--generic gifts i call them, they can go to a variety of different people that you need to buy a gift for...

    has anybody bought any great gifts yet, or plan too? what are some things you would want this year? what would you like to have for yourself, but don't want to spend the money on?

    Mmmm.. dont go much on the shoes (prefer boots) but that coat sure looks the goods:brow
    As for me, dont know what I'll get her this year:uhh:
    Last year she got a nice new set of roller rockers for her birthday and at Xmas I really splashed out on a set of connecting rods and forged pistons:D
    Lucky girl was pissed at me for spending so much money on her but I reckon shes worth it:bow

    Hot Wheels, you're Aussie, what can you tell me about Air Power Systems (APS) out of Australia, if anything?

    They make Turbo Kits, Mostly Holden, Nissan, and Subaru applications. They have dealers in the US and I just wondered what their reputation is. They claim 406hp at the wheels on a new 350z with stock internals at 9.2psi with a TT setup they sell.

    I'm just curious.

    I am also a member of several other automotive forums, if you like I will post on these to see if anyone else can give us some feedback on this company if you like.
