I have a 30-45min drive to and from work, I have snow tires because well I like live in the ******* mountains. The issue is those folks from warmer states don't understand you should really have summer tires and winter tires and freak out and drive 5mph or just keep doing 10-15mph over the speed limit and smash into those going 5mph in the left lane....

Currently (converted for your 'Mericans) a blistering 12°F here, not counting the windchill gusts of ~30MPH.

Kelvin won't work because too many people would say "degrees Kelvin" and I'd lose my mind

Yeah, but I didn't because I'm not dumb.

I blame autocorrect, but it's semantics at that point. Or just put "Lord" in front and you'd be correct again

So I got some interesting work going on right now, got a guy who put a whipple supercharger kit on his 18 escalade with full exhaust. The header burned up the starter. I recc to the guy that he needs to have the header wrapped to prevent burning up the new one and his response is "get whatever wrap you recommend and if you want to go ahead and put it on and just add it to the bill". So, who has done header wrap and are there any tips lol. I've watched vids on it and it seems straightforward.
