You can apply at oreillys online and the application will be available to all stores in the region to pull and look at.

They key word in that sentence is "most" not "all". So that means someone will be looking at it, but what I have noticed at oreillys is most of the people that work there got each other a job there (all the people that work at my local oreillys are all high school friends). But I applied online without telling anyone I knew that worked there and I still got a call about my application, take note that it was two weeks after I applied and I used to be a mechanic so that may have interested them a little more than usual. But it is still worth a try. Our economy is shit right now so finding a job, especially as a teenager, is going to be difficult.

4.10's help with acceleration a little, but it also puts your rpms sky high when you get going that fast. My little 3.0 didn't have a whole lot left in her when she hit the factory limiter of 98. lol.

Mine goes 0-20 like a bat outta hell and then takes forever to get up to 60. lol. Probably a good 13-15 seconds.
