    You should take a minute to watch this. Koenigsegg is engineering a valve system that totally replaces cam shafts and all that is associated with them! Flippin Genius.

    Totally, looks like it's getting vetted and with good dependability in that saab they showed. I hope we see more of this soon! I'd totally do a retrofit on my 1GR and be a guinea pig if Koenigsegg was offering :D

    No mud flaps, plasti dipped emblems, and rear bumper, Weather tech digital fit, Bed mat from tractor supply. Pioneer 4400BH head unit. B.A.M.F bed rail tie downs. AVS vent visors.
    sounds like it’s pretty dependable already. but i’d say if this really took off and manufactures started using it. the dependability and longevity would increase.

    Oh yeah? How many horses do you see broken down on the side of the road? Horses are much more reliable than cars.

    The towing company my girl works for has used their flatbed for dead horses. But how many horses do you see on the road vs cars?
