New Job (a gearhead's dream job)

Just got a job working for NAPA auto parts... that means i'll be getting all my auto parts for cheap. I got a price on a dynomax superturbo muffler.. like $85 for a customer and $59 for employees

anyone else have a similar job

I have worked at a NAPA store for 4 years. As stated, It is a great college job, however, now that I'm almost finished with my MBA, I need to find something else. I can't live off of the money I make.

They use it as a distribution center and when you consider that, it's not that big. I've worked at the Dicks sports DC in smithton and UPS new Stanton and they're massive in comparison

Just lookin out for you. Its hard to make these trucks sound good (or maybe im just dumb) But my dakota (318) was a diff ball game. Started with flows then glass packs then strait pipes with no cats. When I got the tacoma I loved that it was quite, then I got the super turbo now I definetly need a flowmaster. My buddy has glasspacks on his i5 canyon and we sound about the same. Super ricey. LMK what route you go.
