I'm not positive about this idea just yet, but it may be cool. I don't know exactly how it would work yet, but it could be open to suggestions, depending on the feedback.

I was thinking that if members were open to donating old or unused parts, i, or another member could modify them for performance purposes....for example - i think i have a few spare front exhaust manis laying around, so i might be willing to fully port and polish an exhaust manifold as a prize. Other old parts could be donated for polishing, paint, anything really.

These parts could be available to those who donate to the forum, almost as an incentive to help the forum out. Maybe a percentage of the additional raised funds would go towards shipping the part to the winner.

Maybe it would be too much of a hassle, but i thought it might be a good way to improve forum interest.

The idea is in the nature of forum improvement, so keep that in mind. If you do not like it, you can state that, but don't shoot it down. I'm willing to put time and effort into this, (third to my education and fiance however <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :b --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/tongue.gif ALT=":b"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> ) with forum improvement in mind.

If it's too much work to do, i understand, maybe i'll do something myself.

Comments and suggestions welcome. I think feedback will determine whether this will go ahead or not. I'll see what all i have that i am willing to donate and/or modify for prize(s).

I really like this idea and think it could work with a little bit of work. Maybe even try to get some sort of discount to vendors also. A little calling to them might get some of them to maybe give some coupon codes or something.

You just gave me another idea, lol. OQ makes club cards with a logo and everything on them, and most dealerships in the Ottawa area offer cost + 10% to OQ members with a club card. The mods have them made, and they cost something like $5 for 10, so you can hand them out to other people with GP's, or stick in someones windshield wiper to let them know about the club. The administrator usually cuts a deal with the dealerships ahead of time to make sure that members get the deal.


But yeah, we would need people to donate parts, whether it be gaskets, valve covers, pullies, belts, engine covers, TB, CAI/filter etc....

I'll take a look at what i have and see what i would be willing to donate. I may have a front mani that i could P&P to offer.....or something else, if i can find something better.

I don't know who makes them for OQ, but it must be some sort of Graphic Design Firm.

Ahem, something like this?
<!--EZCODE LINK START-->www.clubgpstore.com/itemview.asp?itemid=90<!--EZCODE LINK END-->

But obviously we would not want clubgp anywhere on our cards. But maybe we can get into contact with the company that makes them...

Also, I like the idea of a "parts raffle" but, how would we go about paying for shipping for said parts? Like if I had stock manifolds and I wanted to send them to you to port and then put up for the raffle? Then it has to be shipped to the winner of the raffle as well... I think I will have some parts left over after I get everything in the bottom of my sig on my car! LOL

Hopefully enough people would be interested that we would get enough funds to cover the shipping. Otherwise we could figure something out.

I think we might need to have Eric come up with a design for the cards also.<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Hmmmmm maybe we could do a package deal to the ones that order calenders and they can get maybe 20-30 cards to so they can pass them out.
