Spent much of the day cleaning it, waxing it, etc... It was raining so I just backed it out, washed it in the rain, put it back in the garage and began using a clay bar on the paint. Didn't get much done with that. Apparently the previous owners were just as meticulous and the reason the stuff was o...

Just did a reverse Y2Klimited

Traded the 2013 Jetta TDI for a 2004 Z16. Has headers and cats, some other stuff. Custom interior bits. Fast as hell. 50K miles. Car #1300 with some billet badges and stuff on it. I'm the fourth owner. Number one put 900 miles on it. Number 2 used it as a show car. Number three got a hell of a deal ...

This silly thing gets better mileage than the accord it replaced. Handles better and stops better too. Handling still sucks, however its nearly as large as a Tahoe inside. Win. Think I got it for thirteen something. Had to replace two tires and remove locking wheel nuts. Otherwise its been fine. Its...

They did some fuel rail cleaning shit. Runs fine now. Gave service advisor $20 for himself, and another $20 for tech to "do me a favor" and remove the locking wheel bolts and put on regular lug nuts I bought. They didn't do it. I want my tips back. Flipped rear tires, put on new fronts, gets good MP...

Back in the game

Bought a traded in 13 equinox. Just as soon as I signed the papers, the check engine light started flashing and traction light came on.
60K miles with the 2.4l engine. I'm thinking valve job or timing chain.

Beautiful area. However I found it completely over run with liberals and hippie types. This was back in 2004 I think. Drivers are all nuts. High altitude sucks HP. Low grade fuel was the only thing available. I'd never even heard of 85 octane until I was there. There are some very desolate areas in ...

Hellcat is probably tightly engineered to a price and performance point. When you hit 700hp, that was enough to meet their goal. Why spend more money than necessary to be able to exceed those numbers? All it would do is enable a pulley swap or something to push the engine beyond its design point, an...

Meanwhile the V12 maintains port injection. Everything else is direct injection.

Don't know if it was a noise issue, or just too much expense reengineering a limited volume item.

Mercedes is moving toward smaller displacements and turbos. This is the final year of the 6.3...... other AMG models have moved toward a 5.5l twin turbo direct injection engine. Base cars are getting 4.6L twin turbos if they are V8 powered. The "new" engine due out soon is a 4.0 twin turbo V8 from A...

Although a fraction of the power TBIâ„¢ is capable of, its still impressive... you know... on a smaller scale.

Codeine cough syrup is strong stuff. I hallucinated on that stuff.... Thought someone was walking through my house and I was laying in bed powerless to stop them. I realized there was nobody there because my dog wasn't barking.

Valium is awesome. I had a back strain years ago, that's what they prescribed. I slept for three days straight. The other two I don't remember much. Speeder, ever tried oxy? I had some liquid oxycontin when I had my tonsils out. Stuff was amazing. Its easy to see how people can get hooked on it. Tyl...

But GM doesn't use dual clutch autos do they? Or even wet clutch automatics?

Huh? What automatics are you driving? Because the ones I've driven can easily exceed the abilities of most humans. They downshift and hold the lower gear and higher rpm's in corners as they are integrated with traction control. I'm sure there are some older ones out there that aren't nearly as good,...

The computer gets it right... EVERY TIME. And my clutch leg doesn't get tired in traffic. Last manual I recall driving was a Viper GTS. It was hell in traffic. And those cool rev match downshifts? They don't happen. If I want to shift manually, I'll put my automatic in manual mode. Paddle shifting i...

I'll take an auto over a manual any day. They shift so much faster and can do rev match downshifts and such... automatics have gotten really good. All the automation in newer cars can make someone appear to be a lot better than they actually are, and really pull as much performance out of the car as...
